UTERUS - Carcinoma

The body of the uterus shows a carcinoma, largely in the fundus but infiltrating muscle and, most unusually, extending through to the serous coat. There is a large blood clot present, and fragments of tumour are seen in that. There is a small polypoid piece of tissue in the endocervical canal, which differs slightly in appearance from the tumour and is probably a simple polyp. There are also dilated acini in the endocervical area, indicative of chronic inflammation.
