Two Main Types

Endometrial cancer is the most common type of uterine cancer. It starts in the endometrium, which is the lining of the uterus (womb).

Although the exact cause of endometrial cancer is unknown, increased levels of estrogen appear to play a role. While most cases occur between the ages of 60 and 70, 25% of cases may occur before menopause.

  • Type 1 is the most common, referred to as adenocarcinoma, with a connection to estrogen generally found in Stage I and treated with surgery.
  • Type 2 is less common, and risk factors may be genetic. This induces serous and clear cell cancer, and generally requires aggressive treatments that frequently combine surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation
