Perhaps the most universal goal for research and clinical trials on uterine cancer is to develop a better understanding of the cause of cancer. Doctors know risk factors for many types of cancers, but do not understand why cells become cancerous. Ongoing research and recent breakthroughs continue to give hope for understanding, better treatment and a cure.
Research on uterine cancer, including endometrial cancer and cervical cancer, continues to develop better diagnostic tests and more advanced treatments. Since early diagnosis is so important to successful treatment, better testing is being developed to find and test tumors faster and with less invasive methods.
Clinical trials and research continue to develop better treatments and procedures for uterine cancer. More effective and safer procedures can help fight the condition and improve survivability.
