What Is Womb Cancer


Womb cancer (also referred to as endometrial cancer) affects the lymphatic nodes of the pelvic area. Lymph nodes all around the body are needed to help fight all types of disease and infection. The pelvic lymph nodes affected by womb cancer are located mainly around the fallopian tubes and ovaries. Every year roughly 8,500 women are diagnosed with womb cancer. Overall, 5% of all female cancer diagnosis is some form of womb cancer. It is the 4th most common cancer in the UK for women. Risk factors for womb cancer include: hormones, age (over 90% of breast cancer diagnoses are from over 50s), weight, family history, menstrual history and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). In the latter this is where cysts are known to grow over the ovaries and cause an irregular pattern for when periods occur. Signs that someone might have womb cancer can include: heavier periods than usually expected, bleeding in between periods, irregular discharge or pain during intercourse. Private treatment for womb cancer is available here at the LOC. We are able to provide patients with access to the best treatment options possible thanks to leading experts in the field of womb cancer.
