Together we can take steps to help raise awareness of endometrial cancer
 
 
 
 
After a routine appointment with her gynecologist, Meagan Good learned that she had potentially cancerous cells in her uterus. She and her doctor decided to remove the cells to prevent them from developing further. Now Meagan is passionate about encouraging others to stay on top of their gynecologic health. She’s partnering with FORCE, SHARE, Black Health Matters and Eisai Inc. to help more people across generations learn to spot the potential signs of endometrial cancer and to participate in the Spot Her virtual walk.
 
Spot Her is an initiative to help end the silence around this important health issue. Together we can help empower people across generations and cultures to spot the potential signs early, speak up and take action. You can participate in the Spot Her virtual walk alongside Meagan to take literal steps toward increasing awareness of endometrial cancer.
 
For every mile logged, Eisai will donate $1 between FORCE and SHARE (up to 20 miles per participant, up to $20,000), which provide support for people living with endometrial cancer. Charity Footprints is offering free registration for the first 1,000 participants. Following the first 1,000 participants, registration is $5 paid to Charity Footprints.

“Gynecologic health is an important conversation to have at any age, but it’s not often discussed, especially in the Black community. I’m not afraid to have open and honest conversations with my friends, family and doctor about gynecologic health and I want to encourage everyone, particularly the Black community, to do the same so more people can identify potential signs of endometrial cancer early.
 
As women, it’s important that we support each other, speak up about gynecologic symptoms and advocate for our health when visiting our doctor.”

About endometrial cancer
 
Found in the lining of the uterus, endometrial cancer is the most common type of gynecologic cancer. Endometrial cancer occurs most commonly among women who have gone through menopause, but it can also occur much earlier. In fact, diagnoses are on the rise among younger women between the ages of 20 to 49, when fertility may be an important concern.
 
 
Too often, women with endometrial cancer have reported that their symptoms were stigmatized and dismissed. But, recognizing and voicing gynecologic symptoms can help end the stigma.
 
Some common signs of endometrial cancer may include but are not limited to:
 
 
These symptoms could be easily overlooked or mistaken for other conditions, so it’s important to speak with a doctor as soon as they arise.
 
Symptoms common in later stages can include feeling a mass and/or losing weight without trying. These symptoms are also not necessarily indicative of endometrial cancer and can be caused by other conditions. Based on your symptoms, health history and/or risk factors you may have, a test or procedure may be done by your doctor to confirm a diagnosis.
 
Supporting Communities
 
Even though diagnoses and deaths from this type of uterine cancer are on the rise, it remains underrecognized, especially in communities of color.
 
Uterine cancer incidence and mortality rates are on the rise across ethnicities, with the highest rising incidence rates happening in Native American/Alaska Native, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander and Hispanic communities.
 
Identifying symptoms and seeking help are especially important for the Black community, where there are significant disparities in health care. A study that interviewed fifteen Black women with endometrial cancer suggests that various factors may contribute to a delay in diagnosis in the Black community. Participants described knowledge gaps about menopause, silence regarding vaginal bleeding among family and friends, misinterpretation of vaginal bleeding symptoms and lack of dialogue with health care professionals.
 
Together we can raise our voices about this serious health issue and help Spot Her.
