Unusual vaginal bleeding, spotting, or other discharge About 90% of women with endometrial cancer have abnormal vaginal bleeding. This might be a change in their periods, bleeding between periods, or bleeding after. The process of diagnosis may seem long and frustrating. It’s normal to worry, but try to remember that other health conditions can cause similar symptoms as uterine cancer.

Metastases of cancer of the uterus. Once cancer of the uterus is established, it has the tendency to grow along the uterine cavity down into the cervix and also towards the fallopian tubes. The cancer cells produce lytic enzymes, which enable the cancer also to eat its way slowly through the uterine wall. Advanced uterine cancer symptoms - There is no screening test for endometrial cancer. It is true that these tumors are sometimes detected by cervical smears, but this screening test is very popular when it comes to endometrial cancer; Only captures endometrial cells that have been deployed and inserted into the cervix.
Chapter 3: Diagnosis and Treatment For information on the development of the Pap smear, see G. N. Papanicolaou and H. F. Traut, "Diagnostic Value of Vaginal Smears in Carcinoma of Uterus," American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology 42 (), and "Diagnosis of Uterine Cancer by the Vaginal Smear," by George Papanicolaou and H. Traut (). Uterine cancer may form in various areas of the uterus, but the majority of these cancers develop in the endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus. This type of cancer is referred to as endometrial cancer. Uterine sarcoma is a rarer type of uterine cancer that forms in the tissues of the uterus.
