Cancer that forms in the tissue lining the uterus (the small, hollow, pear-shaped organ in a woman’s pelvis in which a fetus develops). Most endometrial cancers are adenocarcinomas (cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids).
Uterine sarcoma treatment is primarily surgery, with or without radiation or chemotherapy.
The side effects of radiation therapy may include fatigue, diarrhea, urinary problems, and vaginal scarring or dryness.
