Overall Survival Probability Following Surgery


Our endometrial cancer nomogram is a tool designed to predict the likelihood of survival at one year, three years, and five years after undergoing surgery to remove the endometrial (uterine) cancer.

Results produced by this tool are based on data from patients treated at MSK, a large research institution with surgeons who perform a high volume of uterine cancer procedures. This tool has been externally validated using data from large, independent sets of patients (see Supporting Publications). All results must be understood in the context of each patient’s specific treatment plan. Patients and caregivers using this tool should discuss the result with the patient’s physician.

To gather the information required to use this nomogram, use our worksheet.

Note: Please include the number of negative nodes even if other nodes are positive.
What are lymph nodes?
Lymph nodes are rounded masses of tissue that act as filters for a fluid called lymph. Lymph nodes are located along lymphatic vessels, and they store lymphocytes (white blood cells).
Note: This prediction tool was created using the 1988 FIGO staging system. If your pathology report uses a later version with stages that are not included in this drop-down menu, consult with your physician for further guidance on selecting the correct stage.
More on FIGO staging
The FIGO staging system, developed by the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), is used to stage cancers of the cervix, uterus, ovary, vagina, and vulva. It is based on the size of the tumor, whether lymph nodes contain cancer, and whether the cancer has spread from the original site to other parts of the body.
Note: Select "grade 3" for the following tumor subtypes: serous, clear cell, and carcinosarcoma.
What is FIGO grade?
FIGO grade refers to a system developed by the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) that describes the percentage of an endometrial tumor that is solid and not like the glands found in normal endometrium (the inner lining of the uterus).
What is histology?
Histology refers to the exact type of cancer based on examination of the tumor tissue under the microscope.
