Endometrial carcinoma is the common malignant tumor of the female genital tract, and its incidence is increasing. Two different clinicopathological subtypes are recognized based on epidemiology, genetic carcinogenesis and clinical behavior. Understanding and identifying molecular biology and genetics is essential to the development of novel therapies. This article reviews the current understanding of its risk factors, recent conceptions on its tumorigenesis and advances on its drug therapies.
