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.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
