Endometrium cancer

Introduction

Introduction

Endometrial cancer is the most common of tumors that originate in the uterus mainly affecting women between the ages of 50 and 70 after menopause. These tumors are adenocarcinomas in 80% of cases with sarcomas accounting for only 5% of all malignant uterine tumors. 

Endometrial cancer is usually diagnosed at an early stage because it causes uterine bleeding with abnormal frequency (from one menstrual cycle to another) or after menopause.
