Uterine Cancer



What is Uterine Cancer?

Uterine cancer, also known as endometrial cancer, is one of the most common cancers found in a woman’s reproductive system. This happens when healthy cells in the uterus multiply to form a tumor, which in turn becomes malignant. There are two major types of uterine cancer: adenocarcinoma and sarcoma. Adenocarcinoma makes up more than 80% of uterine cancers and it usually develops from cells in the endometrium. Sarcoma develops in the supporting tissues of the uterine glands or in the myometrium, accounting for about 2% to 4% of uterine cancers.
