Endometrial cancer is one of the most frequent gynecological tumors. It affects mainly women after menopause, generally over 60 years of age. Only 20% of women with endometrial cancer are in the pre-menopausal phase. Less than 5% are under 40 years of age.

It is very common to confuse endometrial cancer with cervical cancer, but the professor of Gynecology at the USP School of Medicine Jesus Paula Carvalho, head of the Oncological Gynecology Service of the Cancer Institute of the State of São Paulo, explains that the bleeding is the first sign that something is not going well. He points out that endometrial cancer is a highly curable cancer.
