About the Disease

The endometrium is a tissue that covers the cavity of the uterus and flakes during menstruation. Endometrial cancer cases have a higher prevalence in women over 50 years of age. Among the most common symptoms are postmenopausal bleeding and pelvic pain, but there may still be irregular bleeding before menopause.

Clinical examination and transvaginal / pelvic ultrasound may suspect changes characteristic of endometrial cancer. However, the best way to diagnose it is with biopsy, through hysteroscopy, a diagnostic examination with direct view of the uterine cavity.

The lesion caused by endometrial cancer is evaluated in terms of its type, location, extent and presence of metastases, what we call staging.

Treatment will depend on staging and may be surgical, radiotherapy and / or chemotherapy.
