There are many types of uterine cancer, but endometrial cancer is the most common type. Most cases of endometrial cancer occur in women 60 - 70 years old, but a few cases may happen to women under the age of 40.

The best way to prevent uterine cancer is to have yearly pelvic exams and an endometrial biopsy if you are at risk. We provide information about cancer screenings, testing, assessments and follow-up to help determine your risk for cancer. For more information, please call (NEED CONTACT). One of our healthcare professionals will respond within 48 hours. Exceptions may include weekends and holidays.

We also offers a full range of uterine cancer treatment options, as well as ongoing support for patients and families. For more information about our comprehensive care, or to make an appointment, please call (NEED CONTACT) or find a gynencologic oncologist.

Are you at risk?

Although certain things can increase your risk for developing endometrial cancer, they do not always cause it. Many women with one or more risk factors never develop it and others with endometrial cancer do not have any known risk factors. Even if a woman with endometrial cancer has one or more risk factors, there is no way to know which, if any, of these factors was responsible for her cancer.
