the cancer is found in your uterine, your doctor will do some tests which will determine the stage of the
cancer. In general, stages of endometrial cancer include:
- Stage I – the cancer is localized only in the uterus; it has
not spread to other tissue.
- Stage II – a stage 2 endometrial cancer usually affects both
the uterus and cervix, but has not spread into the pelvic region.
III - the
cancer has spread outside the uterus to reach other organs such as rectum and bladder and lymph
nodes housed in the lower abdomen (pelvis).
- Stage IV - Stage IV is the most advanced stage of the cancer;
the cancer has spread to the upper abdomen and may affect not only the bladder and rectum but also distant
organs from the pelvic.
- Recurrent - a cancer that has returned after treatment is
considered as a recurrent cancer. In general, recurrent cancers are more difficult to be treated, and have
low survival chance.
