is it possible for differentiated endometrioid adenocarcinoma to be cured?

Yes: endometrial cancer which begins in the endometrial mucosa, before invading myometrium or muscle of uterus is virtually 100% cureable. Even if D&C shows tumor cells spreading to blood stream this is not metastasis but cells pushed by curettage into the blood. Even early muscle invasion followed by hysterectomy with node diss. can be cured.

Possibly: Options for postoperative treatment generally include chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy. While many 87 year-olds will have difficulty tolerating these treatments, everyone is different. Some elderly patients who have a good performance status and few comorbidities can tolerate aggressive treatments.
