Endometrial cancer forms in the tissue lining the uterus (the small, hollow, pear-shaped organ in a woman’s pelvis in which a fetus develops). Most endometrial cancers are adenocarcinomas (cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids). This type of cancer is treated by a gynecologic oncologist who specializes in female reproductive system cancer treatment.
