I had a endometrial biopsy for thickening of the lining of my uterus. the results say this focal atypical complex hyperplasia suspicious for adenocarcinoma. i did another biopsy waiting on results because sample was small. what does this mean?

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Thickened endometrium may result in adenocarcinoma, and usually occurs b/c of sustained estrogen production without regular "periods". Most biopsies will be returned as "adenomatous hyperplasia", and not infrequently a hysterectomy is recommended, which in most cases is curative.
