    The most common symptom of womb cancer is unusual vaginal bleeding, for example:

    • bleeding after the menopause bleeding in between periods

    • heavier periods than usual (if you haven’t been through

    • the menopause)

    • a watery or bloody vaginal discharge.

    Less common symptoms are pain or discomfort in the pelvic area, or pain during sex.

    If you have any unusual vaginal bleeding, always see your GP about it. There are other conditions that affect the womb, such as fibroids (benign growths), which can also cause unusual vaginal bleeding.

    Bleeding is one of the first signs of womb cancer, and the earlier womb cancer is picked up, the more likely it is to be cured. Even if you’ve had a normal cervical screening test (smear test) recently, it’s important to have any bleeding checked. A smear test only takes cells from the neck of the womb (the cervix) so it only occasionally picks up womb cancer.


    She should see her GYN ASAP- - -because she needs a D&C ASAP.


    I had uterine cancer in 2007. The medical name for it is endometrial cancer, b/c it starts on the lining ( the edometrium ) of the uterous. Like CB said, the main symtom is bleeding and LOTS of it. It usually starts after menopause. So, when you're bleeding like that, you know it 's not menstruation.

    Good luck, Maggie. You WILL get well.
