Cancer of the uterus - How to prevent?

Prevention And Early Detection of Cancer of the Uterus

There are several things you can do to lower your risk of uterine cancer and to improve the changes of early detection :

  • Report any abnormal vaginal bleeding promptly to your doctor. Most bleeding is not caused by cancer, but only your doctor can perform the tests needed to diagnose the problem.
  • Get a yearly pelvic examination.
  • Eat a healthy diet. A diet that prevents obesity can help prevent cancer. This means eating foods that are low in fat and cholesterol and high in fibre, such as fruits, vegetables and wholegrain breads and cereals.
  • Do not take chances if you think you have a problem. See your doctor at once. When uterine cancer is found early, the outlook is excellent. Delay in seeking treatment makes this disease much harder to cure.
