Uterine cancer symptoms

Untitled Document

Abnormal bleeding—especially after menopause—is a common sign of cancers of the uterus. Routine pelvic exams may improve the likelihood of early detection, but there are no standard tests that screen for the disease.

While these and other symptoms do not necessarily indicate cancers of the uterus, you should consult your doctor for an exam, since many types of uterine cancer are highly treatable if diagnosed early.

Common endometrial cancer
symptoms include:
Common uterine sarcoma
symptoms include:
Bleeding not related to menstruation Unusual vaginal bleeding or spotting
Postmenopausal bleeding Postmenopausal bleeding
Unusual vaginal discharge without any visible blood Unusual vaginal discharge without any visible blood

Pain and/or mass in the pelvic area A mass (lump or growth) in the vagina

These signs and symptoms may be caused by conditions other than cancer. If you experience any of them, see your doctor to determine its cause.
