In the United States, cancer of the endometrium (the lining of the uterus) is the most common cancer of the female reproductive organs. The American Cancer Society estimates for cancer of the uterus in the United States for 2023 are:
These estimates include both endometrial cancers and uterine sarcomas. Up to 10% of uterine body cancers are sarcomas, so the actual numbers for endometrial cancer cases and deaths are slightly lower than these estimates.
Endometrial cancer affects mainly post-menopausal women. The average age of women diagnosed with endometrial cancer is 60. It's uncommon in women under the age of 45.
This cancer is more common in Black women than White women, and Black women are more likely to die from it.
There are more than 600,000 survivors of endometrial cancer in the US today.
