Is pain in your legs a symptom of Uterine Cancer?

One sign of uterine cancer may be leg pain. Leg pain is not always a sign of uterine cancer, though. Leg discomfort can be caused by many reasons.

If uterine cancer grows and presses against the pelvic wall’s nerves, leg pain may result. This growth may occasionally result in edoema and limb pain. Leg pain or pressure might be a symptom of uterine cancer.

What are the signs of uterine cancer?

  • Any bleeding between periods or in the vagina after menopause
  • Unusually lengthy times
  • A shift in the discharge from the vagina (for example, blood-tinged, pussy, or foul-smelling)
  • Pain in the legs, lower back, pelvis, or lower abdomen that occurs during sexual activity

What are the uterine cancer risk factors?

  • Having a family history of ovarian or uterine malignancies, being over 50, being obese, taking oestrogen as a hormone replacement without progesterone, and using the drug tamoxifen
  • Possessing genetic alterations similar to those linked to Lynch syndrome

Treatment of Uterine Cancer

The age, overall health, tumour grade, and stage of the endometrial cancer patient all influence the course of treatment.

A doctor will talk with the patient about the available treatments and potential side effects before starting treatment.

Among the choices are:

  • Surgery
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormone therapy.
