ASCO endorses ASTRO recommendations for postoperative radiation in endometrial cancer

ASCO has endorsed guidelines from the American Society of Radiation Oncology on radiation therapy after surgery for patients with endometrial cancer, according to an article published in Journal of Clinical Oncology.

However, adjuvant treatment for women at an intermediate or high risk for recurrence — including radiation therapy, chemotherapy or a combination of the two — continue to evolve.
