Endometrial Cancer | Overview


What is endometrial cancer and what should I watch for?

Endometrial cancer is cancer of the endometrium. The endometrium is the lining of the uterus (sometimes called the womb). Endometrial cancer can almost always be treated successfully if it's caught early. You can increase the chances that endometrial cancer will be found early by telling your doctor about any unusual bleeding.
