Thanks for posting your query.

Endometrial cancer is diagnosed after histopathology. CT scan only tells the external appearance of the lesion.

If this lesion is related to cancer, it can only be assessed after a biopsy.

The hypodense lesion in liver is more likely to be a benign lesion.

Both the ovaries show cysts which is consistent with your polycystic ovaries.

The findings of this CT scan are not likely to be suggestive of the endometrial cancer.

Presence of lymph nodes or free fluid in pelvic cavity suggests cancer, "but these are not found in your CT scan"

Stage 1 endometrial cancer means the cancer is confined within the uterus only and any changes in the distant organs like liver are not likely.

I hope this answers your query effectively.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.
