The good news

Uterine cancer cannot be prevented, but if caught early, it can often be cured. Report any abnormal vaginal bleeding ― regardless of age ― to your doctor.

Uterine cancer is one of four cancers that have a higher than 95 percent five-year relative survival rate if caught early. When uterine cancer moves to distant parts of the body, the survival rate reduces to less than 24 percent.
