Postmenopausal bleeding, or menstrual bleeding after more than one year of finishing menopause, can indicate serious medical conditions. One of these conditions is uterine cancer, which according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the 4th most common cancer among American women.
Apart from bleeding during menopause, other symptoms of uterine cancer include pelvic pain, painful sexual intercourse, and watery vaginal discharge that is sometimes tinged with blood. If you are going through menopause and have experienced bleeding, or even slight spotting, consult with your obstetrician immediately to learn more about your risk of uterine cancer.
You may also be at risk of uterine cancer if you have undergone a laparoscopic procedure involving a power morcellator. If you believe your diagnosis of uterine cancer has resulted from this medical device, a lawyer at Williams Hart might be able to guide you through the process of seeking compensation through a lawsuit.
