Endometrial cancer is a gynecological disease that we are familiar with, and its harm is particularly numerous. There are also many factors that can cause illness, mainly due to carelessness in daily life. We must pay attention to preventive measures in daily life.
Patients with endometrial cancer who are prone to infection
1. Patients who use estrogen for a long time: Due to medical and other reasons, long-term use of estrogen can also lead to endometrial cancer, and its risk level is related to the size of the hormone dosage, the timing of use, whether pregnancy hormones are suitable, whether conservative treatment is stopped midway, and the characteristics of the patient.
2. Patients with diabetes: diabetes can increase the probability of endometrial cancer. For patients with diabetes or abnormal glucose tolerance, the risk of endometrial cancer has increased by 2.8 times compared with ordinary people, and 3%~17% of endometrial cancer patients are diabetes patients.
3. Obese individuals: Obesity is one of the main factors causing endometrial cancer. Since the 1960s, some surveys have found that the average body weight group of endometrial cancer patients is 13% higher. According to experts, excessive fat in obese individuals not only increases estrogen storage, but also increases estrogen synthesis, which is considered a carcinogenic factor for endometrial cancer. Therefore, if the weight continues to increase by 22 kilograms or exceeds 40% of the normal weight (considered a guard value) within a short period of time, attention should be paid to controlling the weight.
4. Infertility and late childbirth are becoming increasingly popular among women due to factors such as status and pressure. However, experts remind that endometrial cancer often occurs in infertile or infertile patients. 66.4% of endometrial cancer patients under the age of 40 are nulliparous women. The incidence of endometrial cancer in nulliparous women is three times higher than that in multiparous women. Therefore, normal pregnancy and childbirth not only play an important role in maintaining women's mental health, but also have significant implications for their physical health.
5. Obesity, diabetes and hypertension coexist: because obesity, diabetes and hypertension can coexist in patients with endometrial cancer, it is often called the triad of endometrial cancer. For middle-aged and elderly women with these three diseases, the chances of developing endometrial cancer have significantly increased, and caution must be exercised.
6. People with a family history: Those with similar diseases in their family members also have an increased probability of developing endometrial cancer, with approximately 20% of endometrial cancer patients having a family history.
