Welcome to

Well, the more significant genetic syndrome which predisposes women to endometrial cancer is called Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colon Cancer (HNPCC) Syndrome.
Women who carry this hereditary abnormality ( Non-Polyposis Colon Cancer (HNPCC) Syndrome ) are at increased risk for endometrial cancer.

Average age for such type of cancer is 60 years .
It has been demonstrated that a diet high in animal fats and low in fruits and vegetables can increase your risk for uterine cancer.

Bottom line- Uterine cancer type- Endometrial cancer is more of hereditary in nature. However there are many factors like- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome ,Hormone replacement therapy ,Obesity, Childbearing and breastfeeding factors which increases the risk for developing endometrial cancer.

Kind regards
Dr Robert.
