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 2015 are:
- About 54,870 new cases of cancer of the uterine body
- About 10,170 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.
