What is the symbol of uterus cancer?
The most common cancer symbol representing uterine cancer is the peach ribbon.
This peach pink ribbon brings awareness to uterine cancer research, helps to raise funding and support for those fighting the disease, and helps inspire those who have just received a uterine cancer diagnosis.
Endometrial Cancer Ribbons
In addition to being the uterine cancer color ribbon, the peach ribbon brings awareness to endometrial cancer as well.
What is uterine cancer?
Uterine cancer refers to two types of cancers affecting the uterus:
Endometrial cancer, the more common of the two, occurs in the endometrium, the lining of the uterus.
Uterine Sarcoma is rarer, developing in the muscle wall of the uterus.
Uterine Cancer Risk Factors
Age and family history, as in many cancers, can be risk factors for developing a uterine cancer.
The average age of a woman diagnosed with a form of uterine cancer is over 55. It is uncommon to receive a diagnosis before the average age of 45.
Other conditions that upset the hormonal balance of the body may also contribute to uterine cancer risk, such as obesity, diabetes, and certain ovarian diseases.
As researchers are still unsure of the direct cause of these cancers, routine screenings are a very important element of fighting uterine cancer. (2)
What is endometrial cancer?
Endometrial cancer occurs in the lining of the uterus, and accounts for an estimated 95% of all uterine cancers cases in women.
On average, most endometrial cancer cases tend to occur after menopause.
About 3% of U.S. women will receive a uterine cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, with an estimated 65,000 new cases diagnosed each year.
Uterine cancer may not be the most common cancer among US women, but it's still vital to be vigilant for signs and symptoms. Be sure to schedule regular check-ups with your doctor or specialist.
Endometrial Cancer Risks
As with uterine sarcoma, endometrial cancer risks include age, family history, and pre-existing conditions that may alter the hormonal balance of the body.
When is uterine cancer awareness month?
Uterine Cancer Awareness Month takes place every September, just before Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. (1)
During Uterine Cancer Awareness Month, supporters of Uterine Cancer patients are encouraged to wear the peach ribbon, as well as participate in fundraising walks and events to both raise awareness and money.
When is endometrial cancer awareness month?
Endometrial Cancer Awareness Month also takes place during the month of September, with both types of cancers highlighted during a shared Gynecological Cancers Month event.
During this month, supporters hope to raise money and raise awareness for uterine cancers and uterine cancer research, as well as other cancers affecting the female reproductive organs such as ovarian and cervical cancer.

The distinctive pink ribbon is now a common sight year-round and the support created by wearing items depicting it has been a huge tool in the fight against this common cancer.
Every disease deserves a spotlight of awareness like this, and wristbands can be a unique tool in that fight.
