Endometrial cancer is a relatively common gynecologic cancer and diagnosis generally occurs after abnormal uterine bleeding or spotting. The overall five-year relative survival following diagnosis is relatively high, varying from roughly 85% in the United States, to 73% in China, 66% in India, and 63% in Eastern Europe. This chapter reviews the epidemiology of endometrial cancer. Topics covered include patterns of incidence and mortality, hormonal risk factors, and preventive measures.
