Medical Reference
A.

The most common symptom of endometrial cancer is abnormal vaginal bleeding after menopause. Up to 20% of women who have abnormal bleeding after menopause will have endometrial cancer.1 "Abnormal" bleeding means unexpected bleeding. If you are taking hormone therapy after menopause, you can expect some bleeding. But if you have irregular bleeding that continues for 3 months or more, call your doctor.

Abnormal bleeding in women older than 35 who have not started menopause may also be a symptom of endometrial cancer, though this is less common. In rare cases, an unexplained abnormal vaginal discharge may be an early symptom.

Symptoms of more advanced endometrial cancer include:

  • Difficult or painful urination.
  • Pain in the pelvic area.
  • A pelvic lump.
  • Weight loss.

Other conditions with similar symptoms include cervical cancer and dysfunctional uterine bleeding.
