abnormal vaginal bleeding is the most common symptom of uterine cancer. Most uterine cancers show up after menopause but sometimes occur as menopause begins. NCI warns that abnormal bleeding should not just be viewed as part of menopause. Vaginal bleeding after menopause should be checked by a doctor at once.
Other symptoms that should send you to the doctor for an exam include:
* difficult or painful urination
* pain in the lower abdomen
* pain during sex
Any other abnormal vaginal discharge should be checked by a doctor as well.
