Womb (uterus) Cancer is sometimes misdiagnosed as Adenomyosis

It has been reported that some patients have been misdiagnosed with Adenomyosis, when in fact the correct diagnosis in their specific case was Womb (uterus) Cancer.

Uterine cancer is caused by either endometrial cancer which is 95% of uterine cancers, or uterine sarcoma which is cancer of the muscle tissue and is very rare. Symptoms include heavier than usual periods or a change in periods, vaginal bleeding inbetween periods, or periods that continue without any breaks. It can be misdiagnosed as other reproductive disorders such as atypical endometrial hyperplasia, colo-vaginal fistula, uterine polyps and uterine fibroids.

Always consult your doctor or health professional, and do not self diagnose.

Symptoms can include:

Vaginal bleeding between periods, periods that continue without a break, heavier than usual periods, change in your periods

Symptoms are a guideline only and may apply to either the diagnosis or the reported misdiagnosis, or both. Consult your specialist for further information.
