Endometrial hyperplasia and endometrial carcinoma are rare in young women, but the incidence is continually increasing in developed countries due to obesity and metabolic diseases. Pregnancies can occur after the diagnosis of endometrial hyperplasia after progestin treatment and careful regular re-evaluation. The risk of progression to endometrial carcinoma is especially high in atypical endometrial hyperplasia. Fertility preservation treatment can be offered to women with endometrial cancer stage I (FIGO IA), well-differentiated tumours and expression of progesterone receptors. Assisted reproductive technologies (ART) are indicated to shorten the time to pregnancy. Genetic counselling for young women with endometrial cancer is recommended to rule out syndromes of hereditary cancer predisposition such as Lynch syndrome.
