Uterine Cancer

It’s the “silent killer”… uterine cancer.  But is it really so stealthy?

shows that, though it’s commonly thought to have no symptoms, patients
with uterine cancer do all seem to experience signs.  Of course, they
are often misdiagnosed by physicians or simply ignored by victims of
this disease.

Because early detection is the key to treating
uterine cancer, it’s imperative that you not ignore the following
symptoms.  Even if your doctor says it’s nothing, trust your instincts
and obtain a second opinion.  It could save your life.

Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding

a certain amount of “spotting” is common in some women, abnormal
vaginal bleeding may be an early sign of uterine cancer.  Look for a
heavier than normal flow (akin to a normal menstrual period), one that
requires the use of a tampon or sanitary pad.  Sometimes, pain may also
occur, though many women never have any discomfort.

Bleeding after Menopause

you’ve already entered menopause and you suddenly begin to bleed
vaginally, you would be wise to get a check-up.  Uterine cancer can
sometimes cause post-menopausal women to begin bleeding; unfortunately,
many of them assume that their periods are simply starting up again and
ignore the flow.  However, if you’re past menopause, you need to ensure
that any unexpected bleeding isn’t an indicator of uterine cancer.

Bleeding after Sexual Intercourse

women do bleed after sexual intercourse, but if it happens to you on a
regular basis, you may want to contact a physician.  Bleeding after
having sexual activity could be a sign of uterine cancer.  Like
abnormal vaginal bleeding, pain may accompany the bleeding (which often
lasts much longer than expected.)

By being attune to your body and
keeping an eye for the signs of uterine cancer, you can protect
yourself and ensure that your loved ones have you around for many
