Study investigates the risk for cardiovascular events among survivors of endometrial cancer, and the effect of treatment — chemotherapy vs chemotherapy plus radiotherapy — on survivors' risk for CVD.
Researchers sought to determine if a correlation was present between extended oral contraceptive use and a decreased risk of certain cancers.
A report from a phase 3 study on the 5-year failure-free survival of women with endometrial cancer treated with radiation therapy alone vs chemoradiotherapy plus adjuvant chemotherapy.
[Cancer Management and Research] This research examines vaginal cuff brachytherapy (VCB) in the postoperative treatment of high- to intermediate-risk endometrial cancer.
Disease-free survival and overall survival were similar in a study comparing total abdominal vs total laparoscopy hysterectomy approaches in women with stage I endometrial cancer.
Living in a high-poverty region is associated with lower access to obesity-related self-care resources.
The impact of weight loss on risk for endometrial cancer in postmenopausal women was assessed in women enrolled in the Women's Health Initiative observational study.
Adjuvant chemotherapy administered during and after radiotherapy is feasible for the treatment of patients with high-risk endometrial cancer despite an increased risk of toxicities compared with radiotherapy alone.
Nurse-based telephone follow-up was as effective as traditional hospital based follow-up for for stage I endometrial cancer.
Minimally invasive hysterectomy does not appear to compromise long-term survival compared with abdominal hysterectomy.
Adding continuous progestin to estrogen lowers the risk of endometrial cancer in postmenopausal women, according to a new study.
Bariatric surgery slashed the weight of obese women who are most at risk for cancer by one-third, produced a mean weight loss of more than 100 pounds, and eliminated precancerous uterine growths. It also improved physical quality of life, improved insulin levels and glucose use, and altered the composition of gut bacteria.
Non-Hispanic black women with endometrial cancer display worse outcomes when compared to women in other racial/ethnic groups diagnosed with the same subtype of endometrial cancer.
Non-Hispanic black women have higher endometrial cancer incidence and lower survival across all stages and subtypes.
Oral contraceptives protect against endometrial cancer, and the protective benefit lasts for many years after women stop taking the pills.
Use of oral contraceptives, even short-term, offers significant long-term protection against endometrial cancer and the protective effect seems to linger for decades after contraceptive is discontinued.
Women with cervical or endometrial cancer can safely receive extended-field intensity modulated radiation therapy (EF-IMRT) without increased risk of duodenal toxicity.
Researchers have found an association between the risk of endometrial cancer and the age of first menstrual cycle, having given birth, and hormonal contraceptive use for women with Lynch syndrome.
Qualifications to guidelines include stronger statements in favor of chemotherapy in some cases.
Use of robotic surgery showed no differences in blood loss, complication rates, or survival between morbidly obese and lower-weight patients.
Nut consumption is associated with a reduced risk for developing certain types of cancer, but not type 2 diabetes.
Women who followed a Mediterranean-style diet saw a significant reduction in their risk of endometrial cancer, according to a new study.
Women who eat a Mediterranean diet reduce their risk of womb cancer (endometrial cancer) by more than half.
Brachytherapy, with or without external beam radiation, can improve survival in women with inoperable, early stage endometrial cancer.
A reduction in endometrial cancer risk with oral bisphosphonate use in large cohort of postmenopausal women has been observed.
Soy food/isoflavone consumption is not associated with endometrial cancer risk in Japanese women.
Drinking three to four cups of coffee per day may reduce a woman's risk of developing endometrial cancer by nearly a fifth.
