Uterine cancer

Uterine cancer symptoms

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:

  • Bleeding not related to menstruation
  • Postmenopausal bleeding
  • Unusual vaginal discharge without any visible blood
  • Difficult or painful urination
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Pain and/or mass in the pelvic area
  • Unintentional weight loss

Common uterine sarcoma symptoms include:

  • Unusual vaginal bleeding or spotting
  • Postmenopausal bleeding
  • Unusual vaginal discharge without any visible blood
  • Frequent urination
  • Pain in the abdomen
  • A mass (lump or growth) in the vagina
  • Feeling full at all times

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