Do you know the exact cause of uterine cancer? It is still unknown. But it is the most common cancer of the female reproductive organs. There are no screening tests to diagnose uterine cancer in the early stages (hence, it is hard to prevent). Swelling in the uterus of a woman usually occurs when her menopause is about to happen. Swelling occurs between the age of 50-55 years when the time of menopause is close in women (that is when the periods are about to end). But with the polycystic ovary syndrome and at the time of conception, the uterus of women can also be swollen. 

Cancer and pregnancy

  • The endometrium is the inner lining of the uterus. When the cells of the same endometrium grow abnormally, they cause endometrial cancer. Endometrial cancer is dangerous because it can destroy the ability to become mothers forever. Endometrial cancer is also called uterine cancer.

  • If you have sudden bleeding other than periods or any kind of liquid discharge from your vagina other than blood, then these can be a symptom of endometrial cancer. In such a situation, you must get tested. Apart from this, the cycle of your period is continuously changing, bleeding after menopause is also the initial symptom of endometrial cancer. On seeing such signs, immediately go to the Gynecologist.
  • Eating fried (unhealthy), non-physical activity and stress of work, all these things cause inflammation of the womb. It can pose a risk of disease like infertility or uterus cancer, which is called a uterine fibroid.

Causes of inflammation in the womb

Apart from the change in the size of the uterus, there are many other signs of swelling in the uterus. But the symptoms of inflammation in the womb usually depend on its cause.

Diet and exercise 

A healthy diet is vital for a healthful pregnancy, and daily exercise is essential. The blood does not reach the uterus and other parts correctly if you are physically inactive or do not exercise at all. The muscles of the womb become weak due to lack of physical activity. Do some exercise or walk for 30 minutes daily. Yoga is also useful in keeping the muscles flexible and powerful. Also, take nutritious food and avoid stress.
