Endometrial carcinoma (EC) is one of the most common malignant tumors in female reproductive tract, which mainly occurs in perimenopausal and postmenopausal women and has a good prognosis. Due to the increase of life expectancy and the change of living habits, the incidence of cervical cancer has been rising continuously in recent years, and patients are getting younger and younger. In some developed cities in China, the incidence of EC has reached the first place in gynecological malignant tumors. From the point of view of secondary prevention, making early screening strategy is the fundamental way to reduce the incidence of EC. Studies show that the hematological indexes of normal endometrial patients and EC patients are different, which is of great significance for early diagnosis, treatment and improvement of prognosis of EC patients. In order to provide reference for the early diagnosis and treatment of EC, this paper reviews the research status of hematological indexes in the diagnosis and treatment of EC.
