Study: IUDs could help slow endometrial cancer

Posted:

UNDATED (WKOW) -- Endometrial cancer is the most common uterine cancer, accounting for 4.8 percent of cancer in women worldwide.

While a hysterectomy is standard treatment, research has found an intrauterine device (IUD) could help slow the progression. 

IUDs are used as a type of contraceptive but new studies have found they can actually stop or even reverse the cancer growth.

After following 34 women for two years with the IUD implanted, 11 women were still able to conceive.
