The cancer of the uterus or womb is termed uterine cancer. There are two types of Uterine Cancer:
It develops in the endometrium which is the inner lining of the uterus. It is one of the most common gynecologic cancers affecting directly the reproductive system.
This type of cancer develops in the myometrium which is the muscle wall of the uterus. Uterine Sarcomas are very rare.
• Chemotherapy uses powerful drugs to destroy cancer cells. • Radiation therapy sends targeted radiation beams to destroy cancer cells. • Hormone therapy gives hormones or blocks them to treat cancer. • Immunotherapy helps your immune system fight cancer. • Targeted therapy uses medications to target specific cancer cells to stop them from multiplying.
When endometrial cancer spreads (metastasizes), it will most often affect the bladder, rectum, vagina, ovaries, or fallopian tubes. Signs may include frequent or painful urination, pain during intercourse, rectal pain or discharge, and persistent pelvic cramping. There may also be generalized symptoms like fatigue, loss of appetite, and unintended weight loss.
You may experience abnormal vaginal bleeding, ranging from a watery and blood-streaked flow to a flow that contains blood. Vaginal bleeding, during or after menopause is a sign of uterus cancer.
Uterus cancer mainly affects post-menopausal women.
