Abstract

This study considers the prevalence of early bleeding in a series of 173 cases of endometrial cancer, with particular reference to the lag time between the onset of symptoms and diagnosis. The length of this interval is examined in the light of patients' and tumor characteristics. Findings show a general delay in endometrial cancer diagnosis in the population studied. In addition there was a significant trend towards worsening of the tumor stage, depth of myometrial invasion and histological differentiation with increasing delay, thus underlining the need for more care in detection of endometrial cancer.
