Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer which mainly affects the endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus. It is due to the abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Endometrial cancer is also called as uterine cancer, often detected at an early stage because it frequently produces abnormal vaginal bleeding, which prompts women to see their doctors. Endometrial cancer is associated with obesity, excessive estrogen exposure, high blood pressure and diabetes mellitus.
