Endometrial adenocarcinoma is the most common gynecological malignancy in industrialized coun- tries. However, incidences vary among regions. In industrialized countries the incidence maybe four to six times higher than in low-resourced countries. A number of reasons may explain this discrepancy.

At this time, there are no screening tests or exams to find endometrial cancer early in
women who are at average endometrial cancer risk and who have no symptoms. Women
should talk to their doctors about getting regular pelvic exams, including Pap tests.
Although the Pap test can find some female cancers early, most cases of endometrial
cancer are not found by this test. But the Pap test is very good at finding early cancer of
the cervix (the lower part of the uterus).
After menopause you should tell your doctor if you have any discharge or bleeding that...

This book represents an attempt to bring together the latest information and
analysis to assist in meeting the challenge of cancer. Some of the most eminent
European experts in cancer control have contributed to the book. Many of
them will also contribute to the EU Cancer Conference in Slovenia, in
February 2008. The aim of the conference is also to strengthen links between
health-care professionals, cancer patients, policy-makers and other
stakeholders in the cancer community, by sharing their knowledge, experience
and best practices.
The average annual incidence rates of certain cancers, including cervical, esophageal, liver, oral
cavity and pharynx, and stomach cancer were significantly higher in the poorest areas in New
Jersey as compared to the wealthiest areas. Among men, lung cancer incidence rates were
significantly higher in the poorest areas, while lung cancer rates for women did not differ
substantially among the three poverty area groups (areas with high poverty, medium poverty, and
Tamoxifen: Tamoxifen is a drug that is used to treat women with breast cancer. It is also
used to reduce the risk in women who are at a high risk of getting breast cancer. The drug
acts like estrogen in the uterus. It can cause the uterine lining to grow and increase the
risk of endometrial cancer.
The risk of getting endometrial cancer in women taking tamoxifen is fairly small (about 1
in 500). It must be balanced against the value of this drug in treating and preventing
breast cancer. This is something women may want to talk about with...
Getting treatment of an endometrium problem before it becomes cancer is another way to
lower the risk of endometrial cancer. Most endometrial cancers develop over many years.
Many are known to follow, and maybe start from, less serious problems of the lining of
the uterus, such as increased growth of this lining (hyperplasia). Some cases of
hyperplasia will go away without treatment. But sometimes it needs to be treated with
hormones or even surgery. Treatment can prevent hyperplasia from becoming cancer.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death among women. Ideally, it is
desirable to prevent or at least to detect cancer in the precancerous stage.
Early detection is possible by using Papanicolaou’s (Pap) test for cervical
cancer, biopsies for endometrial cancer, and mammography for breast cancer.
History plays a more major role in the detection of colorectal cancer,
because having first-degree relatives with colon cancer; a history of colorectal,
breast, endometrial, or ovarian cancer; and a history of adenomatous
polyps or ulcerative colitis are identified risk factors....
Family history of cancer: Women who have a
mother, daughter, or sister with ovarian cancer have
an increased risk of the disease. Also, women with a
family history of cancer of the breast, uterus, colon,
or rectum may also have an increased risk of
If several women in a family have ovarian or breast
cancer, especially at a young age, this is considered
a strong family history. If you have a strong family
history of ovarian or breast cancer, you may wish to
talk to a genetic counselor. The counselor may
suggest genetic testing for you and the women in
A woman's hormone balance plays a part in most endometrial cancers. Many of the risk
factors for endometrial cancer affect estrogen levels. Before change of life, the ovaries
are the main source of the 2 main types of female hormones -- estrogen and progesterone.
The balance between these hormones changes during a woman's menstrual cycle each
month. A shift in the balance of these 2 hormones toward more estrogen increases a
woman's risk for getting endometrial cancer.
Average annual age-adjusted cancer incidence rates were calculated for each poverty area group
in New Jersey. Included in the report are the average annual age-adjusted incidence rates per
100,000 population for all types of cancer combined and 16 cancers that are the most common
types among men and/or women, or among the leading causes of cancer death.
To plan the best treatment, your doctor needs to
know the grade of the tumor (see page 8) and the
extent (stage) of the disease. The stage is based on
whether the tumor has invaded nearby tissues, whether
the cancer has spread, and if so, to what parts of the
Usually, surgery is needed before staging can be
complete. The surgeon takes many samples of tissue
from the pelvis and abdomen to look for cancer.
We do not yet know what causes most cases of endometrial cancer. But we do know that
certain risk factors are linked to this disease. A risk factor is anything that changes a
person's chance of getting a disease such as cancer. Different cancers have different risk
factors. For example, being in strong sunlight without protection is a risk factor for skin
cancer. Smoking is a risk factor for many cancers. Some risk factors, like your age or
race, can't be changed. Others, like smoking and diet are under your control.
But risk factors don't tell us everything. Someone...
Estrogen therapy: Using estrogen to treat symptoms of change of life is known as
estrogen therapy or menopausal hormone therapy. Estrogen treatment can reduce hot
flashes, improve vaginal dryness, and help prevent the weakening of the bones
(osteoporosis) that can happen with menopause. But the use of estrogen by itself
increases a woman's risk of getting endometrial cancer in women who still have a uterus.
Estrogen therapy also increases a woman's chance of developing serious blood clots and
