Uterine or endometrial cancer refers to several types of malignancy which arise from the endometrium, or lining of the uterus. This usually presents with abnormal vaginal bleeding, anemia or pelvic pain. Diagnosis can be done through pelvic examination, pap smear, endometrial curettage, and transvaginal ultrasound. Regardless of white blood cell count, endometrial curettage is the traditional diagnostic method and the primary treatment is surgical.
Preoperative evaluation includes chest x-ray and complete blood count. Researches showed that women with higher WBC levels, indicating signs of inflammation, have increased risks of breast, colorectal, endometrial, and lung cancers, as well as an increased risk of overall cancer mortality.
