Signs and symptoms

What are the symptoms of endometrial cancer?

The following are the most common symptoms of endometrial cancer; however, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:

  • Postmenopausal bleeding
  • Bleeding or discharge not related to your periods (menstruation)
  • Pain and/or mass in the pelvic area
  • Weight loss
  • Abdominal bloating or swelling

Endometrial cancer occurs most commonly in women in their late 50s but may occur at any age. Any vaginal bleeding after menopause is abnormal and should be evaluated.

The symptoms of endometrial cancer may resemble other medical conditions or problems. Always consult your physician for a diagnosis.
