Your Cancer Doesn’t Stand A Chance.
Uterine Cancer Care at Allegheny Health Network
Uterine cancer, also known as endometrial cancer or womb cancer, occurs most often in women over the age of 20. Abnormal vaginal bleeding is the most common symptom. For women who have already gone through menopause, any vaginal bleeding is considered abnormal and should be evaluated by a physician.
At the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute, your cancer is meant to be beaten. That’s because we have a system-wide program for women with cancer, extending from diagnosis to treatment to your follow-up care and support.
Uterine cancer (also called endometrial cancer) generally occurs in women over the age of 20. Of the two two primary types, endometrial is the more common, accounting for almost 95% of all cases. Uterine sarcoma is the other, rarer type and forms in the muscles or other uterine tissues.
No matter which type you have, as a patient of the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute, you get care from highly skilled doctors who use the most innovative approaches to treating uterine cancer.
