More than 90 percent of women with endometrial cancer complain of postmenopausal bleeding or irregular vaginal bleeding, and one in three women who develop vaginal bleeding after menopause is found to have endometrial cancer.
More than 80 percent of endometrial cancers are found in the earliest, most treatable stages because women notice and report abnormal bleeding. In some cases, the discharge associated with endometrial cancer is pink, watery, or white rather than red. Any abnormal vaginal bleeding and any vaginal bleeding after menopause warrant immediate medical attention.
Other symptoms associated with endometrial cancer include difficult or painful urination or pain during intercourse. In later stages of the disease, women may feel pelvic pain and experience unexplained weight loss.
