Pictured: IGCS and IGCAN representatives held a press conference in Chicago introducing the first global Uterine Cancer Awareness Month on June 1, 2023.

Join the International Gynecologic Cancer Society and its patient advocacy arm, the International Gynecologic Cancer Advocacy Network (IGCAN) and patient advocacy organizations around the world in a global effort to raise awareness of uterine and endometrial cancer. 

Together, in 2023, we declared the month of June as Uterine Cancer Awareness Month. In 2024, we are joining forces again to spread life-saving information and advocate for advances in research and care.

Additional information about the 2024 UCAM campaign is forthcoming and will be made available on this webpage.

Uterine cancer (also referred to as womb cancer, including endometrial cancer) is the 6th most common cancer in women worldwide and the most common gynecologic cancer diagnosed in North America, Europe, and Australia (high-income countries).

Incidence and mortality are on the rise, increasing more rapidly among black, Asian and Hispanic women in the United States, who also tend to be diagnosed at more advanced stages of disease when compared to white women. These rising cases and alarming disparities in the time to diagnoses, treatments, and outcomes among racial and socioeconomic groups highlight the need for action, advocacy, and public awareness.

Uterine cancer is the most common gynecologic cancer among women residing in high-income countries.

And unlike many other cancers, the incidence and death rates are rising.

The number of deaths from this disease has been increasing by almost 2 percent each year, with even sharper spikes among Asian, Hispanic, and Black women in the United States.
