Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial Cancer - Dr. Snita Sinukumar

An Overview:

Endometrial cancer is cancer of the lining of the uterus (called the endometrium).

• The uterus (or womb) is where a baby grows during pregnancy. The fallopian tubes on both sides of it connect it to the ovaries and the cervix connects it to the vagina.

• These reproductive organs are located in the pelvis, close to the bladder and rectum.

• The endometrium is the inside lining of the uterus that grows each month during the childbearing years.
