Uterine cancers are the most common gynecologic cancers. There are several types, but endometrial cancer, originating in the lining of the uterus, is the most frequent. The most common symptom is postmenopausal bleeding leading to an early visit to a gynecologist and a prompt biopsy. This cancer is usually detected early and has an excellent cure rate. The gynecologic oncologists at NYP Queens all have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating this cancer.
