Uterine (Endometrial) Cancer
Signs and Symptoms
The most common symptom of endometrial cancer is abnormal vaginal bleeding that occurs independently of normal menstrual bleeding, especially postmenopausal bleeding. Other symptoms include (Amant 2005; Lentz 2012; Tannus 2009; Denschlag 2010; A.D.A.M. 2012):
- Lower abdominal or pelvic pain/ cramps
- Urinary difficulty
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- White or clear vaginal discharge
If a woman (whether peri-, pre-, or postmenopausal) experiences any of these symptoms, she should consult with her healthcare provider.
