What Can I Do to Reduce My Risk?
There is no known way to prevent uterine cancer. But these things may reduce your chance of getting uterine cancer—
- Using birth control pills.
- Maintaining a healthy weight and being physically active.
- Taking progesterone, if you are taking estrogen.
Ask your doctor about how often you should be checked for uterine cancer, especially if you think that you have factors that increase your chance of getting it.
