Study Provides Closer Look at Postmenopausal Bleeding and Endometrial CancerPosted: August 29, 2018
A new study has found that 90% of postmenopausal women diagnosed with endometrial cancer reported vaginal bleeding before their diagnosis. Approximately 9% of postmenopausal women who saw a doctor for bleeding, the study showed, later received an endometrial cancer diagnosis.
Study Shows Experimental Screening Test Can Detect Endometrial and Ovarian CancersPosted: May 2, 2018
Scientists have struggled to come up with a simple test to detect endometrial and ovarian cancers early, when they are most likely to respond to treatment. Can a liquid biopsy test called PapSEEK change that?
Endometrial Cancer Incidence Rising in the US and WorldwidePosted: November 20, 2017
Diagnoses of endometrial cancer have increased worldwide in recent years, with rates rising in more than half of the 43 countries studied during the decade ending around 2010, a team of international researchers has shown.
Study establishes basis for genomic classification of endometrial cancers; proper categorization is important for choosing the best treatmentPosted: May 1, 2013
A comprehensive genomic analysis of nearly 400 endometrial tumors suggests that certain molecular characteristics – such as the frequency of mutations – could complement current pathology methods and help distinguish between principal types of endometrial tumors, as well as provide insights into potential treatment strategies.
