According to recent article in the New York Times, a new study found that black women die of uterine cancer at twice the rate of white women.
Cancer of the uterus, also called endometrial cancer, is increasing so rapidly that it is expected to displace colorectal cancer by 2040 as the third most common cancer among women, and the fourth-leading cause of women’s cancer deaths.
Uterine cancer can occur quickly and be very aggressive. National Cancer Center encourages all women to get regular check-ups and immediately talk to their doctors about unusual bleeding or other symptoms like pain, bloating or sudden weight loss.
