As a rule, the primary treatment of all stage 1 endometrial cancer is Hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy with lymphadenectomy.

Though you do not have any symptoms as of now, you should consider the surgery as it is going to help you in the long run.

I would go ahead with the surgery.

Hope this helps.
