Endometrial cancer is cancer that starts in the endometrium, the lining of the uterus (womb). Learn more about endometrial cancer.

Endometrial Cancer Treatment at Wake Forest 

If your cancer is an early stage endometrial cancer, our team of gynecologic oncologists will recommend surgical treatment. Our surgeons are experts in both the traditional, open approach, as well as the robotic, minimally invasive approach using the da Vinci™ Surgical System.

Advanced Endometrial Cancer Treatment in North Carolina

Because of the location of the endometrium, this cancer can spread to other organs in the pelvis. If your disease is advanced and metastatic, meaning the cancer has spread, our doctors may recommend chemotherapy and radiation treatments to stop the growth of the cancer. Our doctors will inform you of the latest treatments and advances available, in both chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Supportive Services 

Being treated at the Comprehensive Cancer Center means you participate in advanced care, but also in therapeutic and supportive programs designed for cancer patients and their families. Our Patient and Family Support Services provides these, and many other types of services for our patients.

Clinical Trials for Endometrial Cancer 

By far, one of the most important advantages to seeking treatment at an academic medical center is our access to the latest clinical trials sponsored by the National Cancer Institute and other major cancer research institutions. We offer clinical trials for patients with endometrial cancer. Some of our clinical trials examine the effectiveness of the combination of surgery and chemotherapy to prevent the cancer from returning. Our doctors and staff will walk you through the process of joining a clinical trial and will explain everything you need to know. Learn more about clinical trials at Wake Forest Baptist.
