Multivariate Cox regression model revealed that the FIGO stage, grade, age, histological type, myometrial invasion, and lymph node involvement were all predictive factors on survival (p<0.05). owever, the menopausal status, age at menopause, parity, BMI, comorbidities, ECOG performance score, therapy modality, HR status, and family history were not associated with survival (p>0.05).
