A:

No. clear-cell carcinoma is very dangerous. It will trigger uterine cancer. In short, uterine clear-cell carcinoma is a rare form of endometrial cancer with distinct morphological features on pathology. It is aggressive and has high recurrence rate.

Q:

Could you tell me if endometrial adenocarcinoma and clear cell adenocarcinoma are one and the same or what is the difference?

A:

About 90% of all endometrial cancers are typical endometrial adenocarcinomas. Adenocarcinomas are cancers that arise in the surface layer of cells. Endometrial adenocarcinomas are cancers that originate in the epithelium of the uterine lining. There are three types of adenocarcinomas based on the percentage of tumor growth: grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3.

The other 10% of endometrial cancers are caused by rare cell types. In general, these rarer cancers are associated with later age, greater risk for metastases outside the uterus, and a poorer prognosis.
