Abstract

Purpose: To assess how first course of treatment affects cancer-specific survival in women diagnosed with endometrial cancer younger than 50 years old. Methods: Public-use data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program were used. The study included 82,721 women diagnosed with primary, invasive endometrial cancer between 2000 and 2011.

Results: Cancer-specific survival significantly improved for those aged ≥50 years with late stage, but did not improve for those
