It’s one of the TOP 10 cancers in the nation, striking more people than leukemia or pancreatic cancer.

More than 63,000 older women are diagnosed with endometrial cancer every year, and nearly 1,000 women die every month from this disease.

Yet it gets almost NO attention from the mainstream!

It’s time to change that, as the latest science reveals what could be the FIRST and BEST warning sign of this cancer.

And if you learn to recognize this sign and take swift action, you can catch the cancer early and get the life-saving treatment you need in a hurry.

What is it? Bleeding “down there.”

Yes, you probably thought that you’d be done with that part of the business after you hit a certain age.

But many women end up facing new kinds of bleeding in the years later, even into their 60s and 70s.

NEVER ignore it.

It’s always a sign of something that needs attention, and the new study confirms that it could be the most common warning sign of endometrial cancer. More than 90 percent of women with the disease report having some degree of post-menopausal bleeding BEFORE they were diagnosed.

If you have any sign of vaginal bleeding, don’t panic. It’s not a guarantee that you have cancer.

Odds are, you don’t.

But close to 1 in 10 women with bleeding do have this disease, and many others don’t even show signs or symptoms yet — making it the single biggest risk factor for endometrial cancer.

More importantly, the new study finds that it almost always happens very, very early – right when the cancer is at its most treatable stage.

Yet not all women with bleeding get screened early enough. Some are nervous about seeing a doctor… while others think they can “wait and see” if it comes back or gets worse.

It might not… but why risk it?

That might’ve been your first, best, and maybe even ONLY shot at getting attention when you needed it most!

Even if it’s not cancer, it could be something your doctor needs to treat, including polyps, fibroids, or infection. It could also be a warning sign of an infection – one that might get worse without treatment.

I know it’s never comfortable asking for help with a problem “down there.”

But as Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy says in my free video series Beyond Chemo, “You have to get in front of the cancer immediately.”

Because in this case, your comfort and quality of life are both on the line. And if you wait too long, something else could be at stake: Your life.

Get on the phone. Make that appointment. Get help.
