Endometrial Cancer

The endometrium is the inner lining of the uterus, which is the hollow organ where the fetus grows. Most cancers of the uterus begin in this inner lining and are called endometrial carcinomas, though some begin in the muscles of the uterus, which are called uterine sarcomas. Cervical cancer sometimes metastasizes and spreads to the uterus. Learn more about endometrial cancer.
