Sometimes, knowing the signs and symptoms of uterine sarcoma and seeing a health care professional right away can help find it at an early stage (when it's small and hasn't spread). But many uterine sarcomas reach an advanced stage before signs and symptoms appear.
Screening refers to testing to find a disease, such as cancer, in people who don't have symptoms of the disease. At this time, there are no screening tests or exams to find uterine sarcomas in women without symptoms. Screening tests used for cervical cancer, such as a Pap test or HPV (human papillomavirus) test aren’t effective for uterine sarcomas.
Still, the Pap test is very good at finding early cancers of the cervix (the lower part of the uterus). For information on finding cervical cancer early, see Cervical Cancer Screening Guidelines.
