Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancer is also known as cancer of the womb. It is a cancer that affects the female reproductive system.

Symptoms of womb cancer include:

  • Heavier periods.
  • Bleeding after menopause.
  • Bleeding between periods.
  • A bloody or pink and watery vaginal discharge.

If you have any unusual vaginal bleeding, always see your General Practitioner about it. Other conditions that affect the womb, such as fibroids, can also cause unusual vaginal bleeding.

Your doctor may ask for further investigations, such as blood tests, a biopsy, transvaginal ultrasounds, CT-scans and MRI.

Your doctor will discuss potential treatment with you. Treatment may include:

  • Hysterectomy (surgical removal of the womb).
  • Radiotherapy.
  • Chemotherapy.
