What is the Prognosis of Endometrial Cancer?

Q:

What is the prognosis of endometrial cancer?

A:

Women who are diagnosed early have a far better prognosis. Most recurrences will occur within the first three years after treatment. The majority of women will be diagnosed with early-stage disease and are cured with surgery.

The overall 20-year survival rate for all forms of endometrial cancer is about 80%. This in comparison to 62% for clear cell and 53% for papillary carcinomas. Prognosis depends on the type and stage of tumor. Five-year overall survival ranges from 74% to 91% in patients without metastatic disease.

Better prognosis depends on risky factors like obesity.
