How Do I Reduce My Risk For Uterine Cancer?

While there is no way that you can prevent uterine cancer, there are habits and lifestyle choices you can choose to reduce your risk.

  • Using birth control - birth control has a combination of both estrogen and progesterone. This helps in the risk of an overgrowth of the uterine lining.

  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle with a well-balanced diet, a healthy weight, and being physically active

  • Taking progesterone in conjunction with estrogen if your are on hormone replacement therapy

It is imperative that you speak with your doctor, review your medical history, and determine if you should receive more frequent exams/screenings.
