Endometrial Cancer (cont.)

Endometrial Cancer Symptoms

By far, the most common symptom of endometrial carcinoma is abnormal bleeding from the vagina.

  • In women who have been through menopause, any vaginal bleeding is abnormal and should be evaluated by a doctor.
  • In women who have not been through menopause or who are currently going through menopause, distinguishing normal menstrual bleeding from abnormal bleeding may be difficult. A heavier or more frequent period or bleeding between periods is sometimes linked to cancer in menstruating women. During the transient period of going through menopause, the menstrual period should become shorter and shorter and the frequency should become farther apart. Any other bleeding should be reported to a doctor.

The following symptoms are much less common and usually indicate fairly advanced cancer:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Mass (swelling or lump) in the pelvic area
  • Weight loss
