      Mom found her original pathology on her endometrial cancer.  It lists it as adenocarcinomo of the endoretrium.  This was 20 years ago.  Her new lung cancer is also adenocarcinoma.  Is there a possibility these could be related?

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adenocarcinoma  Wikipedia actually gives a pretty good explanation of why different body parts can have that type of cancer.  It sounds like it's unlikely to be related to the endometrial cancer.

          Hang in there,
