Endometrial cancer is also known as uterine cancer and is characterized by the transformation of endometrial cells to malignant cells in the uterus. The uterus wall consists of two different layers, the inner endometrial layer and the outer muscle layer. The function of the outer muscle layer is in part to push the fetus from the uterus to the vagina during childbirth. Uterine cancer often initiates from the endometrial layer, causing endometrial cancer. Endometrial cancer is the most common cancer in women's reproductive systems. An estimated 60,050 new cases of endometrial cancer will occur, and 10,470 women will die from it, in the US this year.
