Cancer of the Uterus
Uterine cancer typically occurs when cancerous cells develop in the lining of the uterus. However, in rare cases, the cancerous cells may develop in the muscles or other tissues that support the uterus.
Symptoms of uterine cancer include:
- Bleeding or discharge not related to menstruation
- Difficult or painful urination
- Pain during sexual intercourse.
In many cases, cancer of the uterus can be cured using treatment options such as surgery, radiation therapy, hormone therapy, or a combination of these things.
