Treatment overview:

The treatment of uterine cancer endometrial cancer depends on the stage of the cancer. In the early stages, surgery and close follow up may be the only required management. The choice of treatment depends on the location and severity of the cancer.


What are the treatment options for uterine cancer?

Surgery and histopathological staging forms the mainstay of management of endometrial or uterine cancers. Other treatment options, include chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormonal therapy also play an important role.

  • Surgery: Surgery involves the removal of uterus and cervix with or without the removal of ovaries and fallopian tubes. Adjacent lymph nodes may also be removed. Staging is also done during surgery in which few samples of tissue or fluid are taken and sent for examination.
  • Radiotherapy: High energy radiations are used to destroy the cancer cells. Radiation may be given as external beam therapy in which radiation source is outside the body or as internal beam therapy where small source is placed inside the body near the cancer tissue. The decision to start radiotherapy depends on the extent of the cancer. Though, it is usually given in stage II, III and IV. It is treatment of choice in patients who are poor candidates for surgery.
