DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5915/23-2-15080

Carcinoma of the endometrium is the most common carcinoma of the female genital tract. Papanicolaou smears are less successful in detecting endometrial than cervical cancers. The yield can be increased by concentrating on high risk patients and, in doing, in selected or suspicious cases, endometrial biopsy and/or dilatation and curettage.
