How does uterine cancer affect your body?

Various way: Depending on the type of uterine cancer: it can go to another site (metastasis), which can affect the organs that it goes to. If you have a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus), along with lymph nodes in selected cases, you usually have a good outcome, depending on the tumor type and stage (where it has spread). Obviously, you cannot have any more children after this.
