Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer which mainly affects the endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus. It is due to the abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Endometrial cancer is also called as uterine cancer, often detected at an early stage because it frequently produces abnormal vaginal bleeding, which prompts women to see their doctors. Endometrial cancer is associated with obesity, excessive estrogen exposure, high blood pressure and diabetes mellitus.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
