Uterine cancer

The most frequent cancer affecting the female reproductive system is uterine cancer, often known as endometrial cancer. Healthy cells in the uterus go through various changes, and this shift causes them to multiply and grow out of control. In this way, they form a mass known as a tumor, and this is how uterine cancer develops.

A tumor may be malignant or benign. Because a cancerous tumor is malignant, it can develop and spread to other areas of the body (this is called metastasis). While a benign tumor might enlarge, it often does not spread to nearby organs.

The following conditions of the uterus are not cancerous: endometrial hyperplasia, fibroids, endometriosis, and benign polyps.

An increased risk of uterine cancer can be inherited, meaning it is handed down from one generation to the next, or it might emerge in the next generation without affecting the one before. Of all the urinary cancer cases, this happens in about 5% of them.
