Comparison of risk factors and survival of Type-I and Type-II Endometrial Cancers
Objective: To compare risk factors and progression free survival of Type-I & II endometrial cancers.
Methods: A retrospective analysis of 149 patients with early stage endometrial carcinoma treated between 1997 and 2012 in Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi was performed.
Results: A total of 149 patients were analyzed. Type-I tumors accounted for 92% of cases in the study while 8% were Type-II tumors. The mean age, BMI, parity, co-morbidities (hypertension & Diabetes), family history and history of polycystic disease were comparable in both groups. Overall better survival (113 Vs 24 months) was observed for Type-I endometrial cancer.
Conclusion: Both types of endometrial cancer may share common etiologic factors. Despite the limitation of small numbers in one group this study confirms better survival in Type-I endometrial cancer.
