Endometrial Cancer

A small study has found an increased risk for serous or serous-like endometrial carcinoma among women with BRCA1 mutations after undergoing risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy without hysterectomy.

Researchers were able to molecularly classify endometrial cancers with distinct survival differences using a new classification tool called ProMisE that uses clinically applicable methods.
