progesterone is not successful in treating uterine or endometrial adenocarcinoma
surgery is the best option to have the uterus removed.
why is progesterone being considered to treat uterine cancer?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My daughter has endometrial cancer of a non-agressive type. She has been treated with the insertion of a birth control method, plus oral progesterone. She is morbidly obese, and the Dr. seems to fear surgery.

I am not sure what "endometrial cancer of a non-agressive type" means
you need to get her medical records and biopsy reports from her uterus.
I am happy to help you review her medical records and pathology reports.
does she have endometriosis?
