Choosing the right surgeon is one of the big decisions a patient will make once diagnosed with uterine or endometrial cancer. It is important to know that a skilled laparoscopic GYN specialist can perform minimally invasive surgical procedures that lead to a much faster recovery and less pain. The sooner a patient recovers from surgery, the sooner she can begin additional therapies. Ensuring that all stages of treatment and recovery are well managed results in a better overall experience, limiting pain and complications that can make the process so much more difficult to go through.
ABOUT UTERINEAND ENDOMETRIAL CANCERS
Cancers can occur in either layer of the uterus: the body – called the myometrium or the lining – called the endometrium. Cancers are defined both by their type and location. Per the American Cancer Society, the 2 main types of cancer of the uterus are: uterine sarcomas, which start in the muscle layer or supporting connective tissue of the uterus and endometrial carcinomas, which start in the cells of the inner lining of the uterus.
