Endometrial SPOREs

Endometrial cancer starts in the cells of the inner lining of the uterus (the endometrium) and is the most common type of cancer in the uterus. Endometrial cancer is typically diagnosed in women aged 45-74, and approximately 66,200 new cases and 13,030 deaths are estimated by American Cancer Society (ACS) in the United States in 2023. Death rate from specifically aggressive non-endometroid subtypes increased by 2.7% each year from 2010-2017, with worst outcomes in black women. The first Endometrial SPORE was funded in 2003.
