Endometrial Cancer – Overview!
It is a type of uterine cancer that begins in the lining (endometrium) of the womb (uterus). It mostly hits women after the age of 55.
Common Symptoms Of Endometrial Cancer
One of the most common symptoms of Endometrial Cancer is vaginal bleeding. The other symptoms are:
- Bleeding after menopause
- Heavy bleeding during menstrual periods
- Vaginal bleeding between menstrual periods
- Pain during intercourse
- Lower abdomen pain
- Watery vaginal discharge
What to do if you have the above Symptoms
If you experience any of these symptoms, consult your doctor for Uterine Cancer Treatment. These symptoms may not be a sign of a serious health condition but it is important to contact your doctor to avoid any further complications. Most often, abnormal vaginal bleeding is a sign of menopause. However, in some cases, it could be a sign of endometrial cancer or other gynecological cancer.
Endometrial Cancer Staging And Grades
If not treated, endometrial cancer can spread from the uterus to the other parts of the body.
|Stage I||Confined only to the uterus.|
|Stage II||Spread to the cervix.|
|Stage III||Has spread to the fallopian tubes, ovaries, vagina, and/or nearby lymph nodes.|
|Stage IV||Has spread beyond the pelvic area. There are chances that cancer might have spread to the bladder, rectum, and/or distant tissues and organs as well.|
When a person is diagnosed with endometrial cancer, the doctor treats the patient with the appropriate treatment availability. Cancer is easier to treat when diagnosed at an early stage.
Endometrial Cancer Prognosis
Prognosis is basically defined as an estimate of the course and outcome of cancer. It is calculated as a percentage of the people who are likely to survive over the next five to 10 years.
The prognosis mainly depends on the following factors:
- The stage of cancer
- The location of the tumor
- Overall health
- Type of treatment selected
What Are The Survival Rates Of The Endometrial Cancer?
The five-year survival rate depends on Endometrial Cancer Staging and is as follows:
|Type of Stage||Five-year Survival Rate|
|All Stages Combined||81%|
Note: The above five-year survival rate is an estimated calculation based on the stage when cancer is diagnosed.
