Cancer that 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). Treatment includes surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and vaccine therapy.
