Uterine cancer is also known as endometrial cancer. It is a cancer which begins in the lining of the uterus. The uterus is the part of a woman's body where the fetus develops. Uterine cancer is one of those rare cancers in India, which can be diagnosed in its early stages. This is because excessive vaginal bleeding occurs, thus making it a very serious and an apparent symptom. It is also one of the few forms of cancer which can be cured as removing the uterus is often more than enough to cure the patient of uterine cancer.
Here are the causes, diagnosis and treatment of uterine cancer:
The exact cause of uterine cancer is not yet known, however, there is a theory on what causes uterine cancer. Hormones in a woman's body have been thought to increase the chances of getting uterine cancer. This is because it has long been thought that having high levels of estrogen is the cause of uterine cancer. Increased estrogen thickens the endometrium and thus, increases the likelihood of uterine cancer.
There are several tests used to diagnose whether you have uterine cancer including:
1. Pelvic exam: This is an examination in which the vagina, bladder, rectum and uterus are scanned for lumps. If they are found, it might be due to uterine cancer.
2. Pap test: A pap test is a special test designed to scan for uterine cancer.
3. Transvaginal ultrasound: A transvaginal ultrasound uses high-intensity sound waves so that pictures of the uterus can be taken.
4. Biopsy: During a biopsy, the doctor will remove tissue from the endometrium and it will then be analyzed for cancerous growths.
1. Surgery: This is the most common treatment as it removes the entire uterus and prevents the spreading of the cancer.
2. Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy involves giving drugs which kill cancerous cells. They are given through either an intravenous line or even in pill form.
3. Hormone therapy: This is a therapy in which either progesterone levels are increased or estrogen levels are decreased.
4. Radiation therapy: In this treatment, high energy laser beams are used to destroy cancerous cells.

Common Causes of Vomiting
• Food poisoning
• Spinning too fast on a ride
Home Remedies for Vomiting
Heat 2 cardamoms on a dry saucepan. Powder them and add a tablespoon of honey and take frequently.
Try mint tea to get relief from vomiting. Add mint leaves in boiling water. Strain the leaves and serve your tea.
Lemon juice is an effective home treatment for vomiting. Make a mixture of water, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, ½ teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of baking soda, stir all these ingredients well and drink it. This will immediately give relief from vomiting.
Ginger is another ingredient to cure the problem of vomiting. Ginger is good for your digestive system and helps to block unnecessary secretion inside the stomach that can cause vomiting. So when having pre-signs of vomiting, just have some ginger tea with a little sugar.
If you have just finished a bout of vomiting the smell of vomit and the after taste in your mouth can cause more vomiting. In such cases, make a mixture of 1 teaspoon of vinegar with ½ a cup of water. Mix it well and rinse your mouth with this mixture properly. This will help freshen up your breath.
Rice water helps to reduce vomiting, especially when it is caused by gastritis. Boil a cup of white rice in 2 cups of water, strain and drink the rice water.
The antiseptic and anesthetic properties of cloves help in digestion and can also cure vomiting. You can chew some raw cloves or you can add it to tea and drink. Another way to use cloves to stop vomiting is by swallowing a mixture of powdered fried cloves and honey.
The medicinal properties of aniseeds can cure vomiting. You can simply chew aniseed for quick relief. You can also sprinkle roasted aniseed on mild vegetables like carrots or pumpkin
