Prevention of Endometrial Cancer
The risk of endometrial cancer is greatly increased in women who are overweight or obese. Data from Scandinavia suggest that using an intrauterine progestin delivering device (Intrauterine Progestin IUP) could reduce the risk of endometrial cancer. This study wants to find out whether such evidence can also be provided for women in Australia and if yes, whether this can be proven in a randomised prospective trial, comparing IUP with a lifestyle intervention compared to current standard care.
