Objectives In 2020, according to the National Cancer Registry, endometrial cancer in the structure of cancer took second place (10.9%) after breast cancer. Although the detection and treatment of the disease in the early stages has good prospects, but there are relapses from 2% to 26%, according to various literature.
Methods The analysis of recurrence rate among 968 patients with endometrial cancer and stages of endometrioid type. Recurrences amounted to 68 cases (7.02%). The staging took place according to the 1988 FIGO classification. The following statistical methods were used: standard descriptive, parametric and nonparametric. Differences at p <0.05 were considered significant.
Results The analysis was performed depending on the characteristics of the tumor process and the type of treatment, the recurrence rate was estimated - see table 1. The average age of patients ranged from 25 to 85 years. The recurrence time was detected, on average, after 36 months ± 15.97 months. In combination treatment, receiving adjuvant radiation therapy, recurrences were most often detected - after 6–18 months ± 13.53 months. Long-term recurrences were detected after a combination of surgical treatment with chemotherapy at 32–64 months ± 14.31 months. Table 1 Comparison of recurrence rates depending on the characteristics of the tumor process and the type of treatment
Conclusions Our study demonstrates that the frequency of their occurrence is approximately the same, regardless of the method of treatment used. However, with relapses, life expectancy is significantly reduced.
