Prognosis of Uterine Cancer

Typically the prognosis of uterine cancer depends on factors such as how the cancer cells tend to appear when observed under a microscope, the stage of cancer and if the cancer cells are producing the progesterone hormone.  

The stage of the uterine cancer indicates if the cancer is only in the endometrium or spread to the entire uterus or any other organ of the body. The prognosis for uterine cancer is positive if the cancer tends to respond well to the treatment and on the other hand, the prognosis for uterine cancer is negative if the cancer has become difficult to control.

Like any other form of cancer, the prognosis of uterine cancer also depends on the stage of cancer. Lower the stage of cancer the more positive is the prognosis. In most cases of uterine cancer, the affected woman is known to be completely cured.
