Each patient was evaluated clinically and by a biochemical laboratory tests, which include estrogen, progesterone, T3, T4, adiponectin and BMI in serum. The results showed that T3 and T4 may increases the incidence of uterine cancer especially after menopause because its increase significantly BMI and estrogen and decreased adiponectin lead to disorder in hormonal imbalance in women body.
