What is endometrial cancer?
Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the endometrium, the lining of the uterus. The most common symptom of endometrial cancer is unusual bleeding from the vagina. Other symptoms may include pain in the pelvis, feeling tired, and weight loss.
Endometrial cancer is usually found at an early stage and can be cured with surgery and/or radiation therapy. However, if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body, treatment becomes more difficult. Chemotherapy may be used to treat endometrial cancer that has spread, but it is often not effective.
There are many different types of endometrial cancer, and the exact cause is unknown. However, there are some risk factors that have been identified. These include obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and certain hormone therapies. Endometrial cancer is most common in postmenopausal women; however, it can occur in younger women as well.
What are the risk factors for endometrial cancer?
Endometrial cancer is the most common type of uterine cancer. It occurs when abnormal cells in the lining of the uterus grow out of control. Endometrial cancer usually affects women who are postmenopausal, but it can also occur in younger women.
There are several risk factors for endometrial cancer, including:
• Obesity: Women who are obese have a greater risk of developing endometrial cancer. This is thought to be due to higher levels of estrogen in obese women.
• Diabetes: Women with diabetes have a higher risk of endometrial cancer. This may be due to higher levels of insulin in the blood, which can promote the growth of abnormal cells.
• High Blood Pressure: Women with high blood pressure have a higher risk of endometrial cancer. This may be due to changes in hormone levels that occur with high blood pressure.
• Family History: Women with a family history of endometrial cancer are at increased risk for the disease. This may be due to genetic factors that predispose women to developing endometrial cancer.
How common is endometrial cancer?
Endometrial cancer is the most common type of uterine cancer. It is also one of the most treatable types of cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 63,230 new cases of endometrial cancer will be diagnosed in 2018.
What are the symptoms of endometrial cancer?
Endometrial cancer is the most common type of uterine cancer. It begins in the lining of the uterus, called the endometrium. Endometrial cancer usually occurs in women over the age of 60, but it can occur in younger women as well. The most common symptom of endometrial cancer is abnormal bleeding from the vagina. This may be a heavy menstrual flow, bleeding between periods, or bleeding after menopause. Other symptoms include pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, and fatigue. If you have any of these symptoms, it is important to see your doctor for a diagnosis.
How is endometrial cancer diagnosed?
Most endometrial cancer is found at an early stage, when it is most likely to be cured. The best way to find endometrial cancer early is to have a yearly pelvic exam and Pap test.
During a pelvic exam, the doctor can check the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes for any abnormal areas. If any are found, the doctor may do a biopsy. This involves taking a small sample of tissue from the abnormal area to look at under a microscope.
A Pap test can also detect endometrial cancer in its early stages. For this test, the doctor collects cells from the lining of the uterus to look at under a microscope.
If either of these tests finds abnormal cells, more testing will be needed to find out if they are cancerous.
What are the treatments for endometrial cancer?
There are several different treatments for endometrial cancer, depending on the stage of the cancer and the health of the patient. The most common treatment for early-stage endometrial cancer is surgery to remove the uterus (hysterectomy). Other treatments may include radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or hormone therapy.
Are there any lawsuits pending against hair relaxer manufacturers?
