Is adenosarcoma of the uterus inherited?

To our knowledge, there have not been reports of familial cases of adenosarcoma of the uterus, nor have there been reports of a particular gene being linked to this specific type of tumor. Some types of uterine cancer and/or endometrial cancer are known to be associated with hereditary cancer syndromes, but we are unaware of information about an association between these cancer syndromes and uterine adenosarcoma specifically.

Individuals who are interested in learning about how their personal or family history of cancer may affect other family members should speak with an oncologist or genetics professional. These health care providers can help determine whether genetic testing for an inherited susceptibility to cancer is appropriate and/or available.
