Summary
Brief summary
Endometrial cancer usually begins in the endometrium, which is the tissue lining of the
uterus. Endometrial cancer is the most commonly diagnosed gynaecological malignancy in
Australia. It affects 1 in 80 Australian women and there are about 1400 new cases and 260
deaths from the disease every year. Most affected women are aged between 50 and 70 years. The
purpose of this study is to investigate the possible role of the endocrine system in the
regulation of human endometrial cancer. By looking at the laboratory results of people with
endometrial cancer and also those without endometrial cancer we hope to gain a better
understanding of how endometrial cancer develops and progresses. This may lead to the
development of new, effective therapies for endometrial cancer.
