The most common warning sign for uterine cancer, including endometrial cancer, is abnormal vaginal bleeding. Recognition of this symptom often affords an opportunity for early diagnosis and treatment. In older women, any bleeding after menopause may be a symptom of endometrial cancer. Younger women are also at risk and should note irregular or heavy vaginal bleeding as this can be symptoms of endometrial cancer.
“As FWC enters its 25th year of serving women diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer and those who are at risk, this merger will consolidate all FWC activities for the benefit of our Society and women,” said David. G Mutch, MD, who will serve as Chair of the new FWC.
