UTERINE CANCER

Introduction of Uterine Cancer:-

  • Uterine Cancer is the most common cancer of the female reproductive organs.
  • Also called as “Endometrial cancer”.
  • Uterine cancer begins when normal cells in the uterus change and grows uncontrollably, forming a mass called a tumor.
  • This tumor can be benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous- meaning it can spread to other parts of the body).
  • Noncancerous (Benign) conditions of the uterus include:-
  • Fibroids (benign tumors in the muscle of the uterus).
  • Endometriosis (endometrial tissue on the outside of the uterus or other organs).
  • Endometrial hyperplasia (an increased number of cells in the uterine lining).
  • It’s the fourth most common cancer among women overall, behind breast cancer, lung cancer, and colorectal cancer.
  • It is also one of the most curable cancers.
  • Uterine cancer usually occurs after menopause.
  • Risk factors include:-
  • Obesity
  • Taking estrogen-alone hormone replacement therapy (also called menopausal hormone therapy)
  • Family history: – Women with a mother, sister, or daughter with uterine cancer are at increased risk of developing the disease. Also, women in families that have an inherited form ofcolorectal cancer are at increased risk of uterine cancer.
  • Each year, about 3,900 women are diagnosed with Uterine Cancer, with a survival rate of over 80%.

Types of Uterine Cancer:-

There are two major types of uterine cancer:

Adenocarcinoma: – This is the most common type of uterine cancer. It accounts for about more than 95%. It develops from cells in the lining of the uterus called as the endometrium. This cancer is also commonly called endometrial cancer.

Sarcoma: – This form of uterine cancer develops in the myometrium (the uterine muscle) or in the supporting tissues of the uterine glands. Sarcoma accounts for about 2% to 4% of uterine cancers.

Other less common types of uterine cancer include:-

  • Carcinosarcoma: – It starts in the endometrium and is similar to both Adenocarcinoma and sarcoma.
  • Endometrial stromal sarcoma:- It starts in the connective tissue of the endometrium

Basic Pathology of Uterine Cancer:-

The stages of uterine cancer depend upon TNM system:

  • Tumor (T):-Describes the size of the original tumor.
  • Lymph Node (N):- Indicates whether the cancer is present in the lymph nodes or not.
  • Metastasis (M):- Refers to whether cancer has spread to other parts of the body, usually the liver, bones or brain.

Once the TNM classification has been assigned then an overall stage is assigned. The stages are as follows:

Stage I: – In stage I, the cancer cells are confined to the uterus. The disease has not spread anywhere else in the body. Stage I has three subcategories:

  • Stage IA:The cancer was found in the endometrium (the lining of the uterus).
  • Stage IB:The cancer has spread from the endometrium half a way into the myometrium (muscular wall of the uterus).
  • Stage IC:The cancer has spread from the endometrium all the way through the myometrium, but was not found beyond the body of the uterus.

Stage II: – In stage II, the cancer has spread from the uterus to the cervix, but the cancer is not found elsewhere in the body. Stage II is further sub-divided into two categories:

  • Stage IIA:The cancer is found throughout the uterus and in the lining of the cervix.
  • Stage IIB: The cancer has spread from the uterus and into the lining of the cervix and the supporting connective tissue.

Stage III: – In stage III, the cancer remains in the pelvic area and may be found throughout the uterus, cervix and connective tissues. Stage III is further divided into three categories:

  • Stage IIIA: The cancer has progressed to the fallopian tubes or ovaries, the peritoneal fluid and the serosa (tissue on the outer surface of the uterus).
  • Stage IIIB: The cancer has spread to the vagina, but not to the lymph nodes or distant parts of the body.
  • Stage IIIC: The cancer has continued to progress, spreading to the lymph nodes near the uterus.

Stage IV: – In stage IV, the cancer continues to spreads to the inner surface of the urinary bladder or the rectum to the lymph nodes in the groin and/or to distant organs such as the lungs. Stage IV is further divided into two categories:

  • Stage IVA:The cancer has spread to the mucosa, which is the inner lining of the rectum or urinary bladder. The cancer may also have spread to the lymph nodes but not to the distant parts of the body.
  • Stage IVB:The cancer has spread to the organs next to the uterus or to distant lymph nodes.

Clinical Presentation of Uterine Cancer:-

Uterine cancer has following signs and symptoms:-

  • Vaginal discharge: – The most common symptom of uterine cancer is abnormal vaginal discharge. It may start as a watery, blood-streaked flow that gradually contains more blood. It can be sign of infection or other non- cancerous condition.
  • Vaginal bleeding or spotting: – This includes vaginal bleeding between periods, prolonged periods, or bleeding after intercourse or after menopause.
  • Pain in the pelvic area:- Pain during intercourse (dyspareunia) or at other times may be a uterine cancer symptom, or the sign of a less serious condition.
  • Pain or difficulty at time of urination

Diagnosis of Uterine Cancer:-

Diagnosis of uterine cancer includes following tests:

  • Pelvic Examination: – In pelvic examination, uterus, vagina, and nearby tissues for any lumps or changes in shape or size should be checked.
  • Ultrasound: – Ultrasound of pelvic region can show uterine tumor. For a better view of the uterus “Transvaginal ultrasound” is carried out (It is the device which may be inserted into the vagina.)
  • Biopsy: – Biopsy is nothing but the removal of tissue to look for cancer cells. It is by using thin tube which is inserted through the vagina into uterus. After this, gentle scraping and suction is done to remove samples of tissue. Examines the tissue is done by pathologist under a microscope to check for cancer cells. In most cases, a biopsy is the only way for diagnosis of cancer.

Treatment of Uterine Cancer:-

Treatment of uterine Cancer will depend upon the characteristics or stages/ grades of cancer, general health of an individual. It includes:

Surgery: – Surgery to remove the uterus is recommended for most women with endometrial cancer. Most women with endometrial cancer undergo a procedure to remove the uterus called as “Hysterectomy”, as well as to remove the fallopian tubes and ovaries called as “Salpingo-Oophorectomy”.

Radiation: – Radiation therapy uses powerful energy beams, such as X-rays, to kill cancer cells. In some cases, radiation is recommended to reduce the risk of a cancer recurrence after surgery. In certain situations, radiation therapy may also be recommended before surgery, to shrink a tumor and make it easier to remove. In women with advanced endometrial cancer, radiation therapy may help control cancer-related pain. Radiation therapy can be performed in two ways:

  • Radiation from a machine outside the body: – This technique is called as “external beam radiation”. During this procedure individual has to lie down on a table while a machine directs radiation to specific points on body.
  • Radiation placed inside your body:- This technique is called as “Internal radiation” (brachytherapy). It involves placing a radiation-filled device, such as small seeds, wires or a cylinder, inside vagina for a short period of time.

Hormone therapy: – Hormone therapy involves taking medications that affect hormone levels in the body. Hormone therapy has of two options:

  • Medications to increase the amount of progesterone in the body.Synthetic progestin, a form of the hormone progesterone, may help stop endometrial cancer cells from growing.
  • Medications to reduce the amount of estrogen in the body: – Hormone therapy drugs can help lower the levels of estrogen in the body or make it difficult for the body to use the available estrogen.

Chemotherapy: – Chemotherapy uses chemicals to kill cancer cells. While giving Chemotherapy, one chemotherapy drug, or two or more drugs can be used in combination. Chemotherapy drugs can be given by pill (orally) or through veins (intravenously). Chemotherapy may be recommended for women with advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer that has spread beyond the uterus. These drugs enter bloodstream and then travel through the body, killing cancer cells.
