Abstract

Aim:

The study objectives were evaluation of clinicopathological characteristics, correlations between the preoperative and postoperative tumor assessment in early stage endometrial cancer.

Materials and Methods:

We conducted a prospective descriptive study of 30 cases of endometrial cancer stage 1 examined and treated at a tertiary care teaching institute between the years 2014-15.

Results:

The patients' mean age at the time of diagnosis was 56.4 years. The mean parity was two. Postmenopausal bleeding with or without abnormal vaginal discharge was the most frequent symptom; it was present in 84.7% of patients. Co morbidities like hypertension and diabetes were seen in 65% of women. 6/30 patients had family history of some malignancy. All the patients underwent Type I extrafascial hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo oophorectomy, one case had Type I extrafascial hysterectomy with infracolic omentectomy. A total of 10.6% cases had lymph nodes metastasis and none of these patients had ovarian metastasis or positive peritoneal cytology. None of the patients with superficial myometrial invasion (MI) had lymph node metastasis. None of the cases showed positive peritoneal cytology. Staging upgraded fom 1a to 1b in 50% of subjects after final histopathological analysis. One patient who was operated as endometrial hyperplasia with atypia actually had endometrial adenocarcinoma in the postoperative specimen.

Conclusions:

There is a poor correlation between the preoperative and the postoperative tumor assessment.
