Signs and Symptoms

Signs and Symptoms

When endometrial cancer is diagnosed, it’s usually because a woman sees her doctor about symptoms.

The most common symptom of endometrial cancer is abnormal vaginal bleeding, such as bleeding or spotting between periods or after menopause. Some women have other abnormal vaginal discharge that doesn’t appear to have blood in it.

The following may be signs or symptoms of endometrial cancer, but they are uncommon:

  • Difficult or painful urination
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Pain in the pelvic area
  • A mass in the pelvic area
  • Unexplained weight loss

Conditions other than cancer may cause these signs and symptoms. If you have any of these, see your doctor to find out the reason.
