So here is an image of what the pelvic area looks like, and here's the ovaries on either and that middle structure, they yellow structure is the uterus with the vagina at the very bottom. Let's play the animation within the wall of uterus of course is the end of [UNKNOWN] thicker wide like an obster they lay the eggs down when there, if we're like within there and deep within it there could be cancer cells develop within endometrium.

As these cancer cells start to grow larger they begin to slowly push their way through but they too small for as that I couldn't notice you. But it's larger they'll do something interesting, they will suck blood because they are rich vascular place anyway which is often slope with an extra blood supply the cancer grows really quickly then it will do something that's actually devastating, it will shed little cells into the vascular system which then spread throughout the uterus.

Then now its stage one, still very early they can pick this out, then spread it down to the cervix pex, stage two we can still get it out when it goes to the bladder here and then which is stage three up to the intestinal track it begin to spread, see a little area is blue there that's cancer that has not spread.

And when it goes to the bladder and in to the rectum in stage four, it's much more challenging for us to treat. Can you explain the classic symptoms of uterine cancer.
