Endometrial Cancer

Cancer is the outcome of cells that uncontrollably grow and do not die. Human cells grow and divide to form new cells, as the body needs them & died. Normally, cells grow old or become damaged, they die and new cells take their place. In every kind of cancer, some of the body’s cells begin to divide without stopping and spread into nearby tissues.

 

Cancer cells differ from normal cells in myriad ways that allow them to grow out of control and become destructive. They are able to ignore signals that normally communicate cells to stop dividing further and do not understand how to function whereas normal cells mature into individual cell types with specific functions. Older age is the main risk factor for various conditions of cancer. The chance of getting cancer increases, as you become older.

 

Surgery is the first treatment nearly for all women suffering from endometrial cancer. Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the uterus. The surgery includes removing the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. We called this total hysterectomy bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy or TH/BSO. Lymph nodes from the pelvis and around the aorta may also be removed and tested for cancer spread. Pelvic washings may be done, too. The tissues removed at the surgery are tested to see how far cancer has spread & at what stage. Depending on the stage of cancer, other treatments, such as radiation and/or chemotherapy may be suggested. Women who still want to get pregnant, surgery may be put off for a time and other treatments tried instead. If a woman is not well enough to have surgery, other treatments, like radiation, will be used.
