Overview

Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancer of the uterus, sometimes referred to as uterine cancer, is the most common cancer of the reproductive system. It develops in the uterus, though most endometrial cancers develop in the endometrial glands that line the inner wall of the uterine cavity, rather than in the uterus' muscular wall.
