Statistics About Uterine Sarcoma

Statistics About Uterine Sarcoma

Some people use statistics to try to figure out their chance of getting cancer or being cured of it. However, statistics show what happens only to large groups of people. Because no two people are alike, you cannot use statistics to predict what might happen to you.

These 2013 U.S. statistics are from the American Cancer Society:

  • In 2013, about 1,500 women were told they had uterine sarcoma. About 50,000 women were told they had cancer of the body of the uterus.

  • About 8,000 women died of cancer of the uterus. This figure is for all types of uterine cancer combined, not just uterine sarcoma.
