Treatment

Endometrial cancer may be treated with surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or hormonal therapy. Depending on your situation, your treatment team may recommend using a combination of treatments to treat your cancer.

  • Your specific treatment plan will depend on several factors, including:
  • The stage, grade , and specific subtype (histology) of your cancer
  • The size and location of your cancer
  • Your age and general health

All treatments for endometrial cancer have side effects. Most side effects can be managed or avoided. Treatments may affect unexpected parts of your life including your function at work, home, intimate relationship, and deeply personal thoughts and feelings.

Before beginning treatment, it is important to learn about the possible side effects and talk with your treatment team members about your feelings or concerns. They can prepare you for what to expect and tell you which side effects should be reported to them immediately. They also can help you find ways to manage the side effects you experience.
