Diagnosis & Treatment of Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancer, which affects the inner lining of the uterus known as the endometrium, is the most common gynecologic cancer among women.

Often detected in its early stages, endometrial cancer can be successfully treated with the right approach.

Endometrial Cancer- Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment Options

Diagnosing Endometrial Cancer

The process of diagnosing endometrial cancer typically involves several steps:

  • Medical history and physical examination:
    Your doctor will assess your overall health, discuss any symptoms you may be experiencing, and perform a pelvic examination.

  • Imaging tests:
    Ultrasound or other imaging tests, such as MRI or CT scans, may be used to visualize the uterus and surrounding structures.

  • Biopsy:
    A biopsy, involving the removal of a small tissue sample from the endometrium, is usually performed to confirm the diagnosis. This sample is then examined under a microscope to determine the presence of cancer cells.

Additional tests may be conducted to determine the stage and grade of cancer, which helps guide treatment decisions.

Treatment Options for Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial Cancer

The treatment options for endometrial cancer depend on factors such as the stage and grade of cancer, the person’s overall health, and personal preferences. Common treatment methods include:

Surgery

Surgery is often the primary treatment for endometrial cancer. The procedure typically involves the removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) and may also include the removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes (salpingo-oophorectomy). In some cases, lymph nodes near the uterus may also be removed to check for the spread of cancer.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy uses high-energy rays to destroy cancer cells. It may be used before surgery to shrink tumors or after surgery to eliminate any remaining cancer cells. Radiation may be delivered externally (external beam radiation therapy) or internally (brachytherapy), depending on the specific circumstances.

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy involves the use of drugs to destroy cancer cells. It may be used in conjunction with surgery or as a standalone treatment, especially in cases of advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer.

Hormone Therapy

Hormone therapy is occasionally used for treating endometrial cancer, particularly in situations where surgery is not an option. This treatment modulates hormone levels to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
