Comprehensive Information, Resources, and Support on Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancers may be formed from epithelial cells (carcinomas), mixed epithelial and mesenchymal tumours (carcinosarcomas), or mesenchymal tumours. Traditional classification of endometrial cancer is based either on clinical and endocrine features (such as types I and II) or on histopathological characteristics (such as endometrioid, serous, or clear-cell adenocarcinoma).

Endometrial cancer often metastasizes to ovaries and fallopian tubes when the cancer is located in the upper part of the uterus, and the cervix when the cancer is in the lower part of the uterus. Usually, endometrial cancer first spreads into the myometrium and the serosa, and then to other pelvic organs.
