ENDOMETRIUM CANCER

Endometrium is the inner layer of the uterus body. It's the part of the uterus that changes during menstrual cycle: in the same time of ovulation, it gets thicker and full of little blood vessels, in order to favour the eventual embryo implantation. If the woman does not become pregnant, the tissue in excess and the blood vessels are eliminated and become the menstrual flow.

Actually, endometrium cancers are uterus body cancers, but as these cancers almost always start from endometrium, they have been called endometrium cancers.

Endometrial hyperplasia is an increase in the number of cells in the lining of the uterus. It is not cancer. Sometimes it develops into cancer. Heavy menstrual periods, bleeding between periods, and bleeding after menopause are common symptoms of hyperplasia. It is most common after age 40.                                More...
