Time-to-Surgery Influences Survival in Early Stage Endometrial Cancer, Study Reveals

Delayed time-to-surgery has a negative impact on overall survival of women with early stage endometrial cancer, a recent study reveals. Contributors to delay include race, insurance status and facility type. Additional contributors may include increased frequency of preoperative diagnostic testing, individual surgeon case load, lack of surgeon access to a robotic surgery platform, or availability of specialist gynecologic oncologists.
