What are the types of uterine cancer?
The most common type of uterine cancer is endometrioid adenocarcinoma. These cancers form in the glandular cells of the uterine lining.
Other forms of uterine cancer include:
- Serous adenocarcinoma. This type is more likely to spread to other parts of the body and lymph nodes.
- Adenosquamous carcinoma. This is a rare type of uterine cancer that has features of both adenocarcinomas and carcinomas of the squamous cells, which line the outside of the uterus.
- Carcinomasarcoma. This is another rare form of uterine cancer. It has elements of sarcoma and adenocarcinoma and is more likely to spread.
