Abstract

Endometrial carcinoma, the most common gynaecological malignancy in high income countries and increasingly rising in low-middle income countries, has a predominantly favorable outcome. Although the majority of cases of endometrial cancer are diagnosed at an early stage, differences in patient characteristics and histopathological features of the disease impact on both patient prognosis and the recommended treatment approach. Irrespective of the vast literature on the different management options for endometrial cancer, this article gives an updated summary on management principles to a practicing gynaecologist.
