Epidemiology

Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecologic cancer in the United States, estimated to account for ∼63,000 new cases in 2018. Risk factors include obesity, unopposed estrogen, early menarche, late menopause, nulliparity, chronic anovulation, and tamoxifen use. Patients with hereditary cancer syndromes, such as Lynch syndrome, have increased incidence of endometrial cancer.
