There is no way to completely prevent uterine cancer but you can take steps to lower your risk. Women exposed to a high amount of estrogen are more likely to develop uterine cancer than others, so decrease your exposure to excess estrogen. This means eating well and staying in shape to maintain a healthy body weight. Taking birth control pills can help reduce your risk, too.
