Uterine biopsy: The term, "limited but benign" is a term used by a pathologist in reading a biopsy specimen. "Limited" refers to the amount of tissue obtained, "benign" simply states that the tissue obtained has no malignant components. At 47, you may be near menopause, and the amount of uterine tissue is scant. With early pre-malignant changes the tissue is more plentiful.

See below: Agree with Dr. Berrymann.
There was not malignancy in the tissue examined by the pathologist. However, that does not say anything about the rest of the tissue inside the body. You should discuss the results with your doctor and follow her/his advise for follow-up care.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
