Signs and symptoms of endometrial cancer

The most common symptoms of endometrial cancer are:

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding, such as bleeding or spotting after menopause or (in someone who hasn’t gone through menopause) bleeding or spotting between periods
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Pain in the pelvis
  • A lump in the pelvis
  • Weight loss without trying

These symptoms can also be caused by problems other than cancer, but it is important to have them checked out by a doctor to find the cause.
