Hysteroscopy Uterine Biopsy General Anesthetics
Biopsy is tissue removed by needle or cutting to remove part of a body part. It is usually a small amount of material that is processed by a pathologist. Most of the time it is stained and looked at through a microscope to arrive at a diagnosis. Special processes are done for some tissues or problems. The purpose is to tell what the problem is (diagnosis). ...Read more

Hysteroscopy 9/13 biopsy all nrml taking progesterone now have 2cm uterine polyp unlikely cancer or no?
Unlikely: all endometrial polyps should be sent to a pathologist for after ascertainment of whether or not there is a cancer in the polyp. This is highly unlikely if you are on progesterone, however the risk of cancer does increase with age. My suggestion would be to have the polyps removed. The procedure is low risk, would be happy to discuss further. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a vaginal scan indicating that my uterus is axial, the endometrium was 7.7mm now I have to have a hysteroscopy/biopsy is this necessary?

My cervix closed up again. Blood is backed up in my uterus in just 1 month after it was dilated/hysteroscopy/endometrial biopsied. Why might that be?
5 days of sporadic bloody discharge right after period ends. Since 4/2012. Pelvic mri. Office hysteroscopy. Uterine biopsy. Pap smear.. Anything else that should be checked or chalk up to hormones?
I am 56 years old, 3 biopsies (october 2012 last one all benign), 2 sonohysterograms, hysteroscopy, ablation how likely is it that this is cancer?
Insufficient data: Your question can't easily be answered with the information you have given. I am guessing you have uterine bleeding to prompt all this evaluation. Biopsies can be negative if they miss a tumor, but 3 all negative if done by a competent gyn is unlikely to be a false negative, especially if all the other workup is negative. Still, it would depend on what other symptoms and if they persist.. ...Read more
Scared hysteroscopy/biopsy on 3/12 no hyperplasia/cancer put on prometrium 2 months ago day 6 cycle 6mm this one day 4 is 12 mm how likely cancer now& why meds not working?
Hysteroscopy biopsy 4/12 path normal endo biopsy 4/13 normal finished prometrium 2 days ago mid cycle spotted today is this normal or call dr?
Sure likely normal: Sounds like you have been have irregular bleeding and the doctor is trying to find a source for this. With a hysteroscopic biopsy it is not likely that you are missing cancer for example. The follow up biopsy is blinded it seems from your description but is also negative. The spotting after discontinuing the Prometrium is almost expected as a withdrawal bleed. Not concerned at this time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
