  • OBJECTIVE: To estimate the risk for nodal metastasis in women with endometrial cancer based on uterine characteristics on pathology. METHODS: From a study of staging for uterine cancer, women were identified as being at low risk for nodal metastasis based on three specific criteria on final pathology reports: 1) less than 50% invasion, 2) tumor size less than 2 cm, and 3) well or moderately differentiated endometrioid histology. If the uterine specimen did not meet all three criteria, it was… CONTINUE READING
