Abstract

Patients with synchronous endometrial and ovarian cancers are young, often present with abnormal uterine bleeding and have a low initial CA-125. Adequate workup with attention to both ovarian and endometrial status, especially in young patients with a wish to preserve fertility, is important to make the right decision for treatment.
