Uterine Sarcoma: Symptoms

What are the symptoms of uterine sarcoma?

The main symptom you may notice is unusual vaginal bleeding or other vaginal discharge. This may be heavy bleeding during your periods, bleeding in between your periods, or bleeding after menopause. After menopause, it’s not normal for any amount of vaginal bleeding to occur. Report this to your healthcare provider right away. Finding uterine sarcoma while it’s small and hasn’t spread makes it easier to treat.                                                                                                                                                                                    

Other rare but possible symptoms include: 

  • Pain or a feeling of fullness in the pelvic area or lower belly (abdomen) 

  • A mass or tumor that can be felt

  • Frequent urination

When to see your healthcare provider

These symptoms may be caused by other health problems. But it’s important to see your healthcare provider if you have these symptoms. Only a healthcare provider can tell if you have cancer.
