Given the presence of immune dysregulation in endometrial cancer as described, immune checkpoint blockade (ICB) has been explored as a therapeutic mechanism, both. In the largest analysis to date looking at the extent to which vaginal bleeding is associated with endometrial cancer in women who have gone through menopause, 90% of women diagnosed with endometrial cancer reported bleeding before their cancer imately 9% of postmenopausal women who saw a doctor for bleeding later received a diagnosis of endometrial cancer.

Endometrial cancer is the most common pelvic cancer, affecting 14 out of ev women yearly. Most women with this cancer are over 50 and past menopause; 10 percent are still menstruating.

Caucasian women have a % lifetime risk of developing uterine cancer compared with a % risk for African-American by: The incidence of endometrial cancer rose sharply in the United States in the early s, paralleling changes in the use of postmenopausal estrogens by American women.

Women suffering with endometrial cancer usually present in the early stages of the disease and therefore have better prognosis compared with other cancers of the female genital tract. The five-year survival rate can be as high as 96% in cases of early localised cancers.
