  • Endometrial cancer may have exophytic  polipoid-papillary structure or endophytic forms which show infiltration into the stroma and myometrium.
  • Tumor consist of densely located  („back to back) glands with irregular shape, covered with cubic or cylindrical cells in one or several layers, with marked atypia and frequent irregular mitoses.
  • Tumor cells destroy basal membrane and leads to merging of glands,and they look like they are punched.
  • At some places, the cylindrical epithelium  may undergo squamous metaplasia: with fields of mature squamos metaplasia in tumor glands– adenoacantoma or synchronous development of squamos cancer and adenocarcinoma–   adenosquamous carcinoma.
