There is an essential difference between adenomyosis and endometrial cancer. The most typical difference is the high-incidence group. Generally speaking, adenomyosis is more common in menstrual mothers aged 30-50. Endometrial cancer is more common in perimenopause and postmenopausal women.
In addition, the two are different in terms of disease types. Uterine adenomyosis can generally be divided into diffuse and localized. Endometrial cancer is mainly divided into estrogen-dependent and non-estrogen-dependent.
In addition, there are three differences between adenomyosis and endometrial cancer:
1. Inducements are different. Generally speaking, adenomyosis is mostly caused by uterine surgery or endometrial inflammation. The causes of endometrial cancer are very complex, mainly genetic mutations, infertility, hypertension, reproductive endocrine disorders, ovarian tumors, bad lifestyles, etc. These factors will cause this disease and related discomfort as long as they are touched.
2. The symptoms are different. Typical symptoms after the onset of adenomyosis are irregular menstruation, increased menstruation, dysmenorrhea, bleeding during ovulation, loss of sexual desire, etc. The specific symptoms of endometrial cancer are vaginal bleeding and abnormal vaginal discharge. Some severe patients will have low abdominal pain, wasting, fever, anemia, etc.
3. Different treatments. There are many treatment methods for adenomyosis, such as drug and surgical treatment. The treatment of endometrial cancer is mainly surgery. In addition, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, new targeted treatment, etc., can help improve the symptoms, which can be selected.
These three differences are the typical differences between adenomyosis and endometrial cancer. Patients can distinguish between uterine diseases and treat them as long as they can understand them.
Adenomyosis can cause women to have dysmenorrhea, increased menstruation, infertility, and other conditions, which will cause more harm to women. However, in daily life, attention should be paid to strengthening menstrual care, grasping the frequency of sexual life, avoiding multiple abortions, and regulating the diet. If you can do a good job, it can play a role in preventing adenomyosis to a certain extent.
Among the common gynecological diseases, adenomyosis is one that many women have. Once they suffer from adenomyosis, women will have progressively aggravated dysmenorrhea, and their menstruation will increase significantly, making them prone to anemia, infertility, and other conditions. It is necessary to be vigilant about adenomyosis to achieve early detection, treatment, and prevention.
So, how to prevent adenomyosis?
First, strengthen menstrual care. Adult women have menstruation every month, and the physical resistance of women during menstruation will decline. At this time, germs are easy to take advantage of the deficiency. Therefore, women should strengthen menstrual care to reduce the adverse effects on the body. They should pay attention to hygiene during menstruation, wash it with warm water daily, change underwear frequently, and replace sanitary napkins in time. They should see a doctor when menstruation is irregular or menstrual blood volume increases significantly.
Second, grasp the frequency of sexual life. Women should get the frequency of a couple's life. Appropriate couple life plays a vital role in the health of the uterus. However, if sex is too frequent, it may cause damage to the uterus and easily cause some gynecological diseases, especially during menstruation.
Third, avoid multiple abortions. Women should consider strengthening contraception, especially when they are not ready to have a baby. Once pregnant, the endometrium will be damaged during an abortion, and when the endometrium is peeled off, if there is ectopic growth, it is likely to form adenomyosis.
Fourth, pay attention to regulating diet. Women should be careful not to eat spicy, stimulating, and cold food in their daily diet. Especially during menstruation and ovulation, pay attention to lightness and eat warm food. Young girls should be careful not to overeat ice cream, which is too cold. After the uterine cold, they are prone to adenomyosis when they grow up.
Preventing the occurrence of adenomyosis requires more attention from many aspects. At the same time, women should also understand some gynecological physiological knowledge and gynecological diseases, mainly when severe dysmenorrhea occurs. When symptoms of discomfort, such as increased menstruation, it is best to go to the hospital for the relevant examination. If adenomyosis is found, corresponding measures should be taken at an early stage.
