Short and long-term outcomes of endometrial cancer and atypical endometrial hyperplasia management in young women
Endometrial cancer (EC) is the most common gynaecological malignancy in developed countries and the second most com-mon in developing countries.
In recent years, the incidence of endometrial cancer in young women is on the rise. This is partly related to the modern lifestyle and increasing rates of obesity.
A study inverstigated by the scientists from Slovenia (Corresponding Author: Dr. Monika Soboan), identified all women under 45 years of age treated at the University Medical Centre Maribor between the years 2008–2020. They found that young women with endometrial cancer should be offered counselling on the possibility of fertility sparing procedures. Future research should focus on long term PROs and mechanisms of improving them.
