In the group of women who had an endometrial cancer first, there was a median time of 11 years before the diagnosis of the gastrointestinal cancer. Gynecologic oncologists clearly need to play a crucial role in identifying an endometrial cancer patient as having Lynch syndrome. In addition, there appears to be time to refer the patient to genetic counseling and testing and subsequently to institute screening recommendations to decrease colon cancer risk. Synchronous endometrial and ovarian cancers are not uncommon and occur in about 10% of all ovarian cancers and in 5% of all endometrial cancers.
