Endometrial cancerTreatment

There are no results for treating endometrial cancer with vitamin D.

However, studies on serum 25(OH)D levels at time of diagnosis of breast1 and colorectal cancer2 found that those with higher levels (>30 ng/mL) had about twice the 12-year survival rate of those with lower levels.

For more results, see our general cancer treatment section.
