By Zaira Salvador (embryologist).
Last Update: 11/29/2021

Endometrial carcinoma is a common type of cancer in women, especially in those who have entered menopause. It consists of the growth of malignant cells in the endometrial tissue of the uterus. The most frequent symptoms are abnormal vaginal bleeding not associated with menstruation, pelvic pain, and discomfort when urinating or having sexual intercourse.

As in all types of tumors, a rapid diagnosis of endometrial cancer is essential for its treatment to be effective and for there to be no invasion of other parts of the body.
