Endometrial cancer is cancer that starts in the endometrium, which is the lining of the uterus.


  • Cancer occurs between the ages of 60 and 70 years, but a few cases may occur before age 40.
  • The following increase your risk of endometrial cancer:
    • Tamoxifen, a drug for breast cancer treatment
    • Never being pregnant
    • Obesity
    • Starting menstruation at an early age (before age 12)
    • Starting menopause after age 50
    • Diabetes
    • Estrogen replacement therapy without the use of progesterone
    • History of endometrial polyps or other benign growths of the uterine lining
    • Infertility (inability to become pregnant)
