Most uterine cancers begin in the endometrium, which is the lining of the uterus. Endometrial cancer is the most common of all gynecologic malignancies. Uterine sarcomas that develop in the wall of the uterus are less common. Common symptoms of uterine cancer include abnormal bleeding after menopause or irregular bleeding before menopause. The gynecologic oncologists at Ochsner provide the latest in early diagnosis as well as a full range of treatment options.

Many patients can be cured by surgery alone; however, the gynecologic oncologists work closely with the radiation oncologists when radiation therapy is needed. Participating in national studies of the latest treatments through the Gynecologic Oncology Group, the division of gynecologic oncology also provides patients with access to innovative treatments for advanced and recurrent uterine cancer.
