The symptoms of uterine sarcoma include:
- bleeding between periods
- bleeding after menopause
- a mass or lump in the vagina
- pain or a feeling of fullness in the abdomen (belly)
- frequent urination.
Many conditions can cause these symptoms, not just uterine sarcoma. However, all women with unusual bleeding or discharge should see their doctor. All women with postmenopausal vaginal bleeding should be referred to a gynaecologist.
Pap tests do not detect cancer of the uterus. If you have recently had a Pap test with a normal result, this does not mean that you do not have cancer of the uterus. You should still have any symptoms checked by a doctor.
