Microscopic evaluation

Diagnosis

Endometrioid adenocarcinoma

For endometrioid adenocarcinoma, perform grading:[5]

  • Grade 1: ≤5% solid non-glandular, non-squamous growth
  • Grade 2: >5% and ≤50% solid non-glandular, non-squamous growth
  • Grade 3: >50% solid non-glandular, non-squamous growth

Staging

If possible, perform staging by the FIGO system:[7][8]

For biopsies, at least look for myometrial invasion (pictured).
Stage Description
IA Tumor is confined to the uterus with less than half myometrial invasion
IB Tumor is confined to the uterus with more than half myometrial invasion
II Tumor involves the uterus and the cervical stroma
IIIA Tumor invades serosa or adnexa
IIIB Vaginal and/or parametrial involvement
IIIC1 Pelvic lymph node involvement
IIIC2 Para-aortic lymph node involvement, with or without pelvic node involvement
IVA Tumor invades bladder mucosa and/or bowel mucosa
IVB Distant metastases including abdominal metastases and/or inguinal lymph nodes

Microscopy report

Example:

(Endometrium, polypectomy:)
Endometrial adenocarcinoma, endometrioid type, FIGO grade 2, with mucinous differentiation. Carcinoma focally invades myometrial smooth muscle.
