Endometrial carcinoma is generally considered the most common gynecological malignancy. It frequently presents with vaginal bleeding. Both ultrasound and pelvic MRI are useful modalities for evaluation. The incidence is thought to be increasing. In the United States, there is a greater incidence among patients of European descent compared those of African American descent.

Objective: Currently, no clinically useful tumor marker is available for primary diagnosis in endometrial cancer. Human epididymis protein-4 HE-4 has high sensitivity and specificity as a tumor marker. Further, HE-4 has been shown to be elevated in early stage endometrial cancer and is more sensitive than CA In our study, CA and HE-4 reputation as a tumor marker for diagnosis of ovarian and endometrial cancer with the use of both the availability and affect the way we investigated the rate of diagnosis.

Materials and methods: Here 20 patients with ovarian cancer, 26 patients with endometrial cancer, which had been histologically diagnosed, and 40 healthy volunteers were included. Peripheral blood samples were taken and serum CA and HE-4 were tested. Receiver-operating characteristic ROC analysis was performed. For patients with ovarian cancer and healthy controls, the CA 0.

ROC analysis was performed. For endometrial cancer patients and healthy controls, the CA 0. Conclusion: In ovarian and endometrial cancer, wherein early diagnosis is the most important factor for prognosis and survival, HE-4 is a new serum tumor marker that can be used with the aim of noninvasive diagnoses.

For early diagnosis, the concomitant use of CA and HE-4 is more effective and reliable than using either of them alone. Keywords: Ovary; cancer; diagnosis; endometrium; tumor marker. No conflict of interest was declared by the authors.

Objective: Endometrial cancer and uterine leiomyoma are the most common malignant and benign tumors in developed countries. In women operated for endometrial cancer, accompanying uterine myome is observed in high rates. The treatment of the premenopausal myomas is delayed after the menopause conservatively. Yet it is unclear whether this approach has any negative effect on possible endometrial cancer. The goal of this study is to investigate the relationship between premenopausal myomas and the prognostic factors of endometrial cancer.
