Patients whose endometrial cancer has been diagnosed and treated early on have a better chance of survival and cure. In fact, diagnosing and treating earlier stages of endometrial cancer (stage 0 to stage 2) provide a 5-year survival rate of 69% to 90%. So, at the early stages at least, there are a majority of good outcomes for endometrial cancer patients.
One of the most effective treatment options for endometrial cancer is chemotherapy. Chemotherapy involves the use of a combination of drugs to fight against cancer. Because these cancer-fighting drugs reach throughout the body, chemotherapy is an effective treatment for endometrial cancer that has already spread beyond the uterus and the pelvic area.
