Endometrial cancer, also called uterine cancer, is a gynecologic 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 or cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids.
