Abstract

The increasing incidence of endometrial carcinoma seems to demand a more aggressive approach toward the diagnosis to reduce the mortality rates. If a patient becomes symptomatic, chance of a 'cure' will not be as good as when a precursor lesion is discovered. Routine screening of premenopausal asymptomatic women at high risk for the development of endometrial carcinoma and all postmenopausal women should be performed.
