Tubal ligation link to lower cancer and mortality rates

TUBAL ligation may protect against more aggressive endometrial cancers and reduce the risk of mortality.

In a study of 4500 women with endometrial cancer, researchers found those who had a tubal ligation (28%) were less likely to have stage III or IV endometrial cancers. The median age of tubal ligation was 32.

Peritoneal metastasis, even in more serious carcinoma cases, and spread to the fallopian tubes, ovaries, parametrium and bladder/bowel were reduced after tubal ligation.

This suggests transtubal spread is an important aspect of metastatic,
