October 04, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 139

Uterine cancer is a type of carcinoma that appears in the female reproductive organs. It is the fourth most frequently occurring cancer after breast cancer, lung cancer and colorectal cancer. Uterine cancer is considered as the most common cancer in women and fortunately it is curable, too. In Canada, about 3,900 women are diagnosed with this disease each year and the survival rate is more than 80%. The survival rate could be much greater if the carcinoma could be detected earlier. Most cases are called endometrial cancers because they grow in the inner lining of the uterus, the endometrium.

Learning the symptoms is one of the ways to detect the cancer earlier. Unfortunately, sometimes it is hard to notice the symptoms as they often mimic other ailments. Most often, uterine cancer presents no symptoms. If symptoms exist, they usually appear when it has reached an advanced stage but this condition varies from woman to woman. Here are some uterine cancer symptoms you can learn:

1. Women who suffering from this disease may experience abnormal vaginal bleeding; it can be heavy or only light bleeding during the month.

2. When you find unusual heavy vaginal discharges, it may be a symptom of uterine cancer. The discharge may often be foul smelling or contain mucus.

3. If should notice pelvic pain which is not related to the usual menstrual cycle, it can be a symptom of this disease. The pain may range from mild to severe and can last for hours.

4. Bleeding after douching, sexual intercourse or between your periods is another symptom. Sexual activities can cause irritation of the cervix and finally cause bleeding.

One common question that women often ask is how to deal with uterine cancer symptoms. Well, there are many ways you can cope with these symptoms. First, you can take careful note of symptoms that you are experiencing.
