Uterine cancer symptoms

While not always the case, abnormal bleeding is a common sign of uterine cancer. Routine pelvic exams may improve the likelihood of early detection; however, there are no standard screening tests for uterine cancer.

Uterine cancer symptoms

When present, common uterine cancer symptoms may include:

  • Vaginal bleeding or spotting: This includes vaginal bleeding between periods, prolonged periods, or bleeding after intercourse or after menopause.
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge: Some women experience a watery or bloody discharge as a symptom of their disease, though this is often a sign of infection or other non-cancerous conditions.
  • Pelvic pain or pressure: Pain during intercourse or at other times may be a uterine cancer symptom, or the sign of a less serious condition. Women who experience unexpected vaginal bleeding, spotting or unusual discharge should discuss these symptoms with their gynecologist.

Understanding cancer symptoms

These symptoms may be attributed to a number of conditions other than cancer. If you notice any cancer signs or symptoms, it's important to visit your doctor for an accurate diagnosis.
