Uterine Cancer Symptoms


  • Vaginal bleeding, spotting, or brownish discharge after menopause
  • Irregular or heavy bleeding in younger women
  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Symptoms common in later stages:
    • Feeling a mass in the pelvis
    • Losing weight without trying
  • Less common symptoms:
    • Difficult or painful urination
    • Pain during intercourse

Although these symptoms can be caused by factors other than cancer, it is important to be evaluated by a gynecologist who may recommend additional testing. The diagnosis of uterine cancer often relies on obtaining a tissue sample through a surgical procedure called a biopsy.
