Uterine Sarcoma

Uterine sarcoma is a type of cancer that forms in the muscles of the uterus or other tissues that support the uterus. This type of cancer is very rare, making up less than 4% of all uterine cancers, and differs from endometrial cancer, which originates in the layer of cells that form the lining of the uterus.

Signs of uterine sarcoma may include abnormal vaginal bleeding between menstrual periods, vaginal bleeding after menopause, pelvic pain, abdominal pain, a feeling of abdominal fullness, or frequent urination.

Specialists in the GW Cancer Center’s Gynecological Oncology Program use the newest technology to diagnose and treat uterine sarcoma based on each individual’s needs.
