Caption

Cancer of the uterus. Light micrograph of a section through a uterine sarcoma. Sarcomas are malignant (cancerous) tumours (neoplasms) arising in the connective tissues of organs. Sarcomatous cells have little or no cytoplasm and a large, irregular nucleus (dark pink). Uterine cancer has a greater risk of occurring in women with a history of failure to ovulate, obesity or long term taking of oestrogen hormones. Symptoms include heavy periods (menorrhagia) as well as bleeding between periods and after sexual intercourse. Effective treatment is by removal of the uterus (hysterectomy). Magnification unknown.
