Uterine Cancer


Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the uterus and is also called uterine cancer. Endometrial cancer begins in the layer of cells that form the lining (endometrium) of the uterus. Other types of cancer can also form in the uterus, including uterine sarcoma, but they are much less common than endometrial cancer.
