In evaluating these trends in the East-West comparison, one notes that the epidemiologic features connoting high risk are similar in both cultures; while they are more common in the West, they are more strongly associated in the East. Clearly, a prospective interview method of obtaining reproductive data will be more informative for such a crosscultural study with greater numbers lending better support. In summary, there exists a grouping of reproductive phenomena fairly common in Western societies that are related to higher risk for endometrial cancer, and we have noted similar characteristics in Eastern women who have developed this disease, while control groups in Eastern societies where this disease is uncommon have a low profile for such attributes in comparison to the West.
