Endometrail cancer is diagnosed by examining a piece of endometrium, which is usually removed via a biopsy,. The first line of conventional treatment is surgery, usually to remove the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. Thus if the cancer spreads than chemotherapy or radiation therapy may be used. The doctor may also use hormonal therapy, in the form of progesterone , another female hormone is used to counteract the effects of estrogen.
