Endometrial cancer symptoms vary from woman to woman. If you have gone through menopause, see your doctor if you have any vaginal bleeding, spotting or unusual discharge.
If you have not gone through menopause, see your doctor if you have any of the following symptoms for more than two weeks:
- Unusual bleeding, such as between periods or heavier flow
- Abnormal vaginal discharge
- Pelvic pain or pressure
- Unexplained weight loss
These symptoms do not always mean you have endometrial cancer. However, it is important to discuss any symptoms with your doctor, since they may signal other health problems.
Behavioral and lifestyle changes can help prevent endometrial cancer. Visit our prevention and screening section to learn how to manage your risk.
Some cases of endometrial cancer can be passed down from one generation to the next. Genetic counseling may be right for you. Learn more about the risk to you and your family on our genetic testing page.
Cancer screening exams can detect cancer early, when the chances for successfully treating disease are greatest.
