Endometrial cancer care

Also known as: Uterine cancer care

Endometrial cancer detected in its early stages can be cured with surgery and close follow-up. Treatment choices depend on where the cancer is and how much it has grown. Treatment may include one or more of the following:

  • Hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy surgery to remove the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and sometimes the pelvic lymph nodes
  • Lymphadenectomy surgery to remove lymph nodes
  • Radiation therapy to kill cancer cells
  • Progestin hormone therapy to block cancer growth
  • Chemotherapy to kill cancer cells

Providence Gynecologic Oncology Program focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and management of female reproductive cancers.
