Abstract

The Lifestyle Plague and Health: Obesity and Endometrial Cancer

In developed and westernized countries such as the United States, endometrial cancer (EC) is the most common gynecological cancer with incidence rates being as much as 10 times higher than other cultures. The majority of women present with postmenopausal and abnormal perimenopausal bleeding, and almost 75% of these patients are in the early disease stage, yet the death rate has risen.
