Uterine cancer

Also known as: Endometrial cancer, Cancer, uterine, Cancer, endometrial
Endometrial cancer, also called uterine cancer, is the abnormal growth of cells in the lining of the uterus (endometrium). The cause of endometrial cancer is not known; however, exposure over many years to the hormone estrogen without enough of the hormone progestin to balance it (unopposed estrogen) is associated with the development of endometrial cancer.
