The endometrial cancer is a type of cancer which starts from the uterus and the cells start spreading further. The uterus is one of the most important and significant part of the pregnancy which carries and develops the fetus. The uterus lining also known s the endometrial lining is where the cancer cells start developing and spreading. Generally this cancer can be detected at a very early stage and can be reduced with various tests, treatment sand medications. The symptoms can also be considered as vaginal bleeding, watery discharge from the vagina, pelvic pain and inflammation and such abnormal condition which can drag your attention! With menstruation changes and hormonal changes, you can suffer from this disease which has numerous causes.
Here Are The Stages Of Endometrial Cancer Which Can Have Different Ways And Medications!
This is the first stage of endometrial cancer which is identified by the doctors. This is the very early and starting stage of cancer in women. In this stage, the cancer cells are not yet spread and are found in just a single layer of the uterus. This is the very early stage of cancer detection which can be reduce easily with medications.
This is the second stage of cancer where the cancer cells are only found in specific locations of the uterus or the womb, other surrounding tissues and areas have yet not got infected by the cancer cells. This is also an early stage of cancer detection.
- Stage IA:
In this third stage of cancer detection, the cancer is spread only in the endometrial or the uterus lining. The cells are detected in the entire lining or just in the single part of the uterus. This is also considered as an early stage of cancer which has less cells detected and lesser body part infected.
- Stage IB:
This is the fourth stage of detection where the cancer cells are spread on more than the half part of the uterus or myometrium. In this stage, more cancer cells are detected over the uterus lining than the previous stage.
With this stage, the cancer starts getting critical as this is a higher stage where the cancer cells are spread over the cervical stroma but has not yet started spreading over the other surrounding parts.
This is the later stage where the cancer cells have completely and entirely covered the uterus but still have not reached the pelvic area. The entire uterus is now infected with the cancer cells which can be a quite higher stage of cancer.
- Stage IIIA:
In this stage, the cancer gets more hectic and high as, the cancer cells are spread on the uterus and all the surrounding tissues covering the fallopian tubes too. Other parts of the body are not yet infected but yet, this is a late stage of cancer.
- Stage IIIB:
This stage gets more critical as, the cancer cells spread beyond the limit. Along with the uterus, the cancer cells are spreads to the vagina and surrounding parts.
- Stage IIIC1:
In this later stage, the cancer gets spread into the regional areas surrounding the uterus like the fallopian tubes, pelvic area, and the pelvic lymph nodes and gets more harmful.
- Stage IIIC2:
In this later stage, the cancer cells are spread to covering regions like the Para aortic lymph nodes. During This stage the cells may or may not spread to the regional lymph nodes and are restricted.
- Stage IVA:
In this later stage, the cancer cells are spread to the rectum of the bladder which is quite dangerous and can cover almost all the parts of the uterus surrounding creating a very hectic situation.
- Stage IVB:
This is the late stage of cancer where the cancer cells have completely covered the uterus, lymph nodes, surrounding tissues, complete pelvic area, and have also started spreading in the bones, lungs, surrounding tissues etc.
