About Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancer, also known as uterine cancer, is a disease in which cancerous cells form in the tissues of the inner lining of the uterus. When endometrial cancer is detected early, it is usually curable.

Several types of endometrial cancer exist, which include:

  • Endometrioid adenocarcinoma
  • Adenosquamous carcinoma
  • Clear cell adenocarcinoma
  • Serous adenocarcinoma

Uterine sarcoma is related to endometrial cancer and affects the muscle wall of the uterus, as well as other tissues that support the uterus.
