This may be of use to you. It indicates that some women experience pain in the lower abdomen. But, if you’re experiencing this pain, it could also be a few dozen other things. Do some online research and talk to a gynecologist.

Abnormal bleeding is the symptom that usually triggers an investigation with endometrial cancer as one of the possibilities. It’s a fairly rare condition for women under the age of 40. Factors that increase risk are lack of ovulation unless the woman gets progesterone some other way like with a Mirena or depo shots diabetes, obesity, family history, taking tamoxifen to prevent breast cancer.
