What is uterine cancer?
Uterine cancer means a malignant tumor originating from cells of the glandular epithelium — endothelium. Like the vast majority of malignant tumors, this type of cancer is characterized by the ability to penetrate into the lower layers of the uterus and neighboring tissues, as well as disseminate lymphogenous metastases in the pelvic region and distant organs. Other malignant primary uterine tumors, such as sarcoma, are less common.
What are the symptoms of uterine cancer?
Despite the early manifestation of the symptoms of the disease, their non-specific nature is often the cause of untimely diagnosis of uterine cancer. That is why, at the first suspicion of a pathological process in the endothelium, a number of diagnostic procedures should be performed that exclude the presence of a malignant tumor. Among the main symptoms, it is important to note:
Vaginal bleeding. Any bleeding after menopause is suspicious of a tumor process. Differential diagnosis is also subject to bleeding that occurs in the middle of the menstrual cycle, as well as a change in the nature of menstruation;
Vaginal discharge — watery, purulent or serous;
Discomfort and pain during intercourse;
Pain in the pelvic area, during urination or defecation — usually appear at the advanced stages of the disease and indicate the involvement of neighboring organs;
Progressive anemia (anemia) as a result of chronic blood loss
Signs of metastatic damage to internal organs (most often the liver, lungs and spine).

Diagnosis of uterine cancer
Specialists of the Herzliya Medical Center clinic use the most modern instrumental and laboratory diagnostic methods to determine the presence of a tumor at the first clinical manifestations, such as:
Ultrasound examination of the pelvic organs, including transvaginal ultrasound, which allows highly accurate assessment of the anatomical structure of the uterine layers and the presence of a cavity pathological process suspicious for a tumor;
Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure that helps specialists visually assess the structure of the uterine mucosa and obtain a tissue sample for further laboratory research;
Histological examination of drugs obtained by biopsy or diagnostic curettage of the endometrium (curettage). This analysis is necessary to establish a final diagnosis, as well as to determine the sensitivity of cancer cells to hormonal and chemotherapeutic drugs;
Laboratory diagnostic methods, including studies of the level of tumor markers in the blood, as well as testing for the presence of genetic mutations that increase the risk of uterine cancer;
Diagnosis of the size and location of the tumor, as well as the presence of metastatic spread of the disease using computer, positron emission and magnetic resonance imaging.
The rich diagnostic arsenal of the Herzliya Medical Center hospital will make it possible to carry out all the necessary diagnostic procedures in one clinic.
Uterine Cancer Treatment in Israel
The use of modern and effective cancer treatment methods in Israel allows the specialists of the Herzliya Medical Center clinic to achieve excellent results even at the advanced stages of the disease. Among the main methods of treatment of this type of oncology it should be noted:
Radical hysterectomy — an operation to remove the uterus, appendages and regional lymph nodes is today the main treatment method that allows achieving stable remission. Most uterine removal operations at the Herzliya Medical Center are performed using the laparoscopic (closed) method, which allows to reduce the recovery period to a minimum and significantly reduce the risk of complications;
Chemotherapy with modern antitumor drugs helps to effectively control the spread of the tumor when it is impossible to radically remove it, and also increases the effectiveness of complex therapy;
Specialists-oncologists of the private clinic Herzliya Medical Center develop individual treatment programs taking into account the type of tumor, the stage of the disease, age and the presence of concomitant chronic diseases, guaranteeing an unsurpassed quality of medical services and a humane attitude to patients.
