I came across this new research today and thought some of you might want to know about it.

The study found that endometrial tumors with high estrogen receptor expression have a poor prognosis if they also have high amounts of glucocorticoid receptor, which is a stress hormone receptor.

Very interesting contribution to understanding how stress can increase cancer or recurrence. Also why some people respond well to making changes in their lifestyle, and some do well without changing things.
