Endometrial cancer, commonly referred to as uterine cancer, is a type of 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 (cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids). It is the most common cancer occurring within the female reproductive system.
