Endometrial (Uterine) Cancer Overview
What Is Endometrial Cancer? TOPICS
How many women get endometrial cancer?
- About 52,630 new cases of cancer of the uterine body
- About 8,590 deaths from cancers of the uterine body
These numbers include both endometrial cancers and uterine sarcomas. About 2% of uterine body cancers are sarcomas, so the actual numbers for endometrial cancer cases and deaths are slightly lower than the numbers above.
