Worried About Uterine Cancer?


If you are obese, if you have never had children, if you have skipped a lot of periods in your lifetime, and never taken oral contraceptive pills you may be at risk for uterine cancer. Fat intake, the amount of exercise and whether you have been a smoker can affect risk as well. There is protection against uterine cancer however, and it's the birth control pill. So it's important to discuss with your gynecologist how you can best protect yourself against uterine cancer. Protection from progesterone only pills is more likely to protect you than combination pills.But being on the pill is more likely to prevent you from getting uterine cancer than not taking pills at all. Every individual has her own risks, gab with your gyno and find out if this is right for you!
