Washington, DC -- The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists (SGO) today issued guidance to physicians for diagnosing, managing, and treating endometrial cancer, the most common female genital tract malignancy. In the US, more than 40,000 women will be diagnosed with endometrial cancer this year; it is the fourth most common cancer in women, behind lung, breast, and colon cancer. Approximately 7,310 women die annually from the disease. Because it is the most common cancer of the female reproductive system, nearly all ob-gyns will encounter the disease sometime in their career.
