In brief: Uterine

Uterine cancer is the most common gynecological cancer. The cancer usually starts in the lining of the uterus, called the endometrium.
Warning signs that something may be wrong include vaginal bleeding, spotting, or discharge in between periods. Also, bleeding or spotting that occurs after a woman has gone through menopause is a reason to get evaluated. More advanced disease may cause painful urination, pain in the pelvic area, or pain during intercourse. There is an increased chance of endometrial cancer in a woman who has taken the hormone estrogen alone (not in combination with progesterone.) also, women who have had breast cancer and who have been treated with tamoxifen may be at increased risk, and should have a yearly pelvic exam, particularly is any unexpected vaginal bleeding occurs. The effects of the cancer depend on how far it has spread in the body. If limited to the endometrium, bleeding may be the only sign. If it spreads to the adjacent bladder or bowel, it can cause blood in the urine or stool and pain.
