Obesity is a common risk factor for uterine cancer.
There are certain changes a woman can make in her lifestyle that may lessen her risk of developing uterine cancer. These include:
Staying at a healthy weight
Weight loss in women who are overweight
Following a low-fat diet
Being physically active
Taking birth control pills. Studies suggest that the use of birth control pills may decrease the risk of uterine cancer. However, other risks may be associated with birth control, so it's important to discuss the possible risks and benefits with a health care provider.
