Optimal follow-up of endometrial cancer patients

Gynecological malignancies account round 10 % of all female cancers, with the uterine cancer being the most predominant one. Surveillance programs of all gynecologic cancers are primarily based on recurrence rates, timing of recurrence, salvage options and chances for cure of patient with recurrence. Since there is no prospective, high evidence data about optimal surveillance program after primary treatment of patients with endometrial cancer recommendations are based on review of retrospective data sets. From all the diagnostic tools available, history taking and clinical examination, including comprehensive gynecological examination, still contribute to the greatest number of recurrence detection. Radiologic tests are usually employed when a suspicion of recurrence is raised. Follow-up plan should be tailored according to the estimated risk of relapse for individual patient.
