Womb or also called Uterusis an important part of the female sexual organs (most mammals; including humans). Its shape is similar to pear shape and made mostly of muscles. It is the organ where the fertilized egg (embryo) is kept to grow and develop until the time that it is ready to be delivered.
Many diseases can affect the womb, for example womb cancer or uterine cancer.
