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. We assessed type of treatment using Cox’s proportional hazards models to determine survival disparity by age and stage. Results: Cancer-specific survival significantly improved for those aged ≥50 years with late stage, but did not improve for those
