Signs and Symptoms of Uterine Cancer and Endometrial Cancer

Early uterine cancer usually is asymptomatic (i.e., does not cause symptoms). Abnormal vaginal bleeding, which is the most common symptom, may also result from a condition called dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB).

Other symptoms of uterine cancer include the following:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Painful or difficult urination
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pain during intercourse

Advanced uterine cancer may cause weight loss, loss of appetite, and changes in bladder and bowel habits.
