What is Endometrial Cancer or Uterine Cancer? (Definition)
Endometrial cancer (also known as Uterine Cancer) is a disease that originates from the endometrium (the lining of the uterus or womb). It is the result of the abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. The initial sign is most often vaginal bleeding not associated with a menstrual period. Other symptoms include pain with urination or sexual intercourse, or pelvic pain. Endometrial cancer occurs most commonly after menopause.
