Signs and Symptoms
The most common symptom of endometrial cancer is abnormal vaginal bleeding that occurs independently of normal menstrual bleeding, especially postmenopausal bleeding. Other symptoms include (Amant 2005; Lentz 2012; Tannus 2009; Denschlag 2010; A.D.A.M. 2012):
- Lower abdominal or pelvic pain/ cramps
- Urinary difficulty
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- White or clear vaginal discharge
If a woman (whether peri-, pre-, or postmenopausal) experiences any of these symptoms, she should consult with her healthcare provider.
