Endometrioid adenocarcinoma, which accounts for the majority of endometrial cancers, typifies the group of endometrial carcinomas that develop from atypical endometrial hyperplasia in the setting of excess estrogenic stimulation. In contrast, serous carcinomas are representative of endometrial tumors that occur in older women who have endometrial atrophy and lack the typical… CONTINUE READING
