What Is Endometrial Cancer? TOPICS

How many women get endometrial cancer?

The American Cancer Society’s estimates for uterus cancer (both endometrial cancer and uterine sarcomas) in the United States for 2014 are:

  • 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.
