Histological section shows mainly decidualised endometrial tissue with hyperplastic glandular component
specimen: uterine evacuation?
Hyperplasia: The sample you describe is suggestive of overgrowth of tissue in the uterus due to irregular menstrual cycles. It is seen in women who go for > 6 months without bleeding and suggests overstimulation due to estrogen effect. If left untreated, it could lead to endometrial cancer. Still, it is very slow growing but needs to be monitored. ...Read more
Biopsy:Cervical squamous mucosa w/ reactive epithelial changes and hyperkeratosis.Endocerv. curetting:benign endocerv. tissue.Can you help understand?
Doctor Speak: There is nothing scary in those results. "Benign endocervical tissue" means there is normal, non-cancerous tissue from the endocervix. "Cervical Squamous mucosa" is simply normal skin from the outer cervix. "Reactive epithelial changes" mean that they see evidence of a reaction by the skin to irritation or injury. Hyperkeratosis is an increased amount of keratin in the skin. ...Read more
What does BENIGN ENDOMETRIUM W/ ATROPHIC CHANGES & FEATURES OF GLANDULAR & STROMAL BREAKDOWN mean? NEG FOR HYPHYPERPLASIA, ATYPIA, OR MALIGNANCY.
Pathology 101: An endometrial biopsy is usually done to look for cancer, and the pathologist here saw no signs of cancer (malignancy/atypia) in the sample obtained. The other findings can be seen with or close to menopause (natural or induced by surgery or medications), and can be normal in many situations, but context (why the test was done) is important to be able to interpret this result uniquely for you. ...Read more
Pap result: mild inflam. background, superficial & intermed. squamous cells w/ benign endocervical cells; history of 2 irreg. paps. Colposcopy needed?
No: If read accurately, your Pap smear indicates an inflammatory or infectious process - not a premalignant one. Colposcopy is not indicated now but you need to be checked to see what is causing the inflammation...clear the inflammation...repeat the pap...and only then have a colposcopy if the Pap smear shows premalignant cells. You could also be tested for high-risk HPV. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Grade 2 invasive ductal carcinoma infiltrating as cords and tumour cells in a fibroadipose stroma, what does this mean?
Grade 2: There are 2 basic forms of breast cancer, ductal and lobular. Yours tumor is a ductal but it sounds like it has some lobular features, in particular it's infiltrating as cords sometimes called "Indian file infiltration". I don't think this has any clinical significance. See your oncologist and follow their advice. Most important is knowing lymph node status. Best of luck and God bless. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Need details: A more detailed pathology report is needed. It depends on whether the hyperplasia was simple or complex and whether there was any atypia seen. If the hyperplasia was simple without atypia, the treatment of choice would be progesterone. Otherwise hysterectomy may be a better option. ...Read more
