In brief: Read below

Endometrial cancer presents as spotting/bleeding in between periods, heavy periods, and postmenopausal bleeding.
Risk factors include: obesity, early age of menstruation, late age of menopause, never having carried a pregnancy (nulliparous women), ovarian disease that leads to an imbalance of estrogen and progesterone, tamoxifen use, and genetic predisposition.
