Abstract Oral contraceptives have been reported to confer protective effect against tendometrial and ovarian carcinoma. An uncommon presentation of concomitant endometrial and ovarian cancer in a young patient using oral contraception is reported. PIP: Use of combined oral contraceptives (OCs) has been associated, in numerous studies, with a duration-linked protective effect against ovarian and endometrial cancers. Reported in this paper is the case of a 28-year-old US OC user with concomitant carcinomas of the cervix and endometrium. The woman had been taking combined OCs for 4 years when she presented for intermittent mid-cycle bleeding of about 9 month's duration. The pelvic examination showed a normal size uterus slightly irregular in contour; the Pap smear was normal. The patient did not return for the recommended dilatation and curettage until 6 months later, when her symptoms persisted. At that time, laparoscopy revealed bilateral ovarian enlargement. Frozen section biopsies identified adenocarcinoma in both ovaries and the uterus. Total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-ophorectomy, omenectomy, and complete cervical staging were performed. The lesion in the left ovary was considered to represent a metastasis from the endometrial primary, while the lesion in the right ovary was viewed as a separate primary. Although synchronous primary cancer of the endometrium and ovary is a rare event, the women affected tend to be premenopausal with a median age of 41 years.
