The Cause is Unknown

The exact cause of endometrial cancer is unknown. It is theorized that some factor triggers a genetic mutation within cells in the endometrium. Unlike healthy cells, which grow, multiply and die at a set rate, abnormal cells grow and multiply out of control and do not die at a set rate. Consequently, the abnormal cells accumulate and form a tumor.
