From 1976 to 2004, we followed 71 751 participants of the Nurses' Health Study and identified 676 invasive endometrial cancer cases. Birthweight, assessed in 1992, was not associated with the incidence of endometrial cancer. No effect modification by menopausal status was observed, but statistical power to detect an interaction was limited.
