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.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
