Synopsis

Malignant tumor of the uterine lining (endometrial cancer) or less commonly of uterine muscle or tissue (uterine sarcoma). Endometrial adenocarcinoma is characterized by abnormal vaginal bleeding (90%), usually post-menopausal, which may contribute to early diagnosis. Other signs and symptoms include pelvic pain, menorrhagia, and vaginal mass. Hysterectomy, following early detection, contributes to a positive prognosis for stage 1 cancer limited to the uterus. Inoperable cases may benefit from radiation therapy (RT). Metastatic uterine cancers may be treated with combination of RT, brachytherapy, lymph node dissection, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy.
