The aim of the study was to analyse the population and disease characteristics of endometrial cancer patients. Age, residence, obstetric history, medical risk factors, symptoms and stage of the disease were analysed in 108 patients from Gdańsk region treated for endometrial cancer between 1989 and 1993. All women had at least on of the medical risk factor; obesity was found in 2/3 of the cases. Endometrial cancer was more common among patients from urban than rural areas. 75% of the patients were between 50 and 70 years of age. There was no relationship between parity and endometrial cancer. The only manifestation of disease was metrorrhagia occurring more than 6 months after menopause. The epidemiology of endometrial cancer in Gdańsk region does not differ significantly from the literature data, although no effect parity on its incidence was found in our study.
