Most endometrial cancer is a type called endometrioid, which tends to grow slowly. It is often found when in an early stage, limited to the uterus. Treatment may include surgery and radiation and can often result in a cure.
There are several subtypes of endometrial cancer, some that are aggressive and faster-growing. The subtype is determined by a pathologist who specializes in gynecologic cancers, after reviewing tissue samples removed by biopsy or surgery.
If you have been diagnosed with a gynecological cancer and would like Stanford Health Care to help plan your treatment, call the Stanford Women’s Cancer Center and ask to make an appointment. Your doctor can also reach out to our gynecologic oncologists. Within a week, we will have a nurse coordinator contact you to schedule an appointment.
