I am having an endometrial biopsy by brushing. What does this mean?

Not sure: An endometrial biopsy can be preformed by placing a small cannula inside the uterus and taking a sample.

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

I am 54 with atypical grandular on abnormal pap  does this mean it could be cancer or ovanian cancer could you try to answer this scared .

Concerning: This is relatively common and while you are wise to be concerned, if there is no visible lesion this is probably going to be manageable. Your next step will probably involve getting tissue for diagnosis, followed perhaps by some curative therapy if indicated. I admire your proactive approach. Good luck. ...Read more

HSIL-CIN 3: I assume that you are talking about high grade intraepithelial lesion- cin 3- carcinoma in situ. It refers to severely cellular changes on the cervical epithelial lining., colposcopy is needed. The treatment is to remove (excise) or destroy (ablate) the abnormal area to prevent cancer. The risk to develop invasive cancer of the cervix is about 20% if nothing is done, follow up w/ your gyne closely. ...Read more

If i had a colposcopy and had cin2 abnormal cells removed and a biopsy took does this mean i cud still have cancer? Or what does it mean?

If i had a colposcopy and had cin2 abnormal cells removed and a biopsy took does this mean i cud still have cancer? Or what does it mean?

Your Gynecologist ca: Your gynecologist should guide you further. The cin 2 means you have some abnormality in the cells, most likely caused by infection by hpv. A majority of the cin2 resolve on their own as your immune system can control the infection. Occasionally it will progress and become cancerous. So you need regular follow up with your gynecologists so that he/she can monitor you and guide you. Good luck. ...Read more

Had transvag ultrasound.  Says endometrial stripe is 3mm.  Is this normal? Is this bad? I have no idea what this means or what the stripe should be

Need more info...: If you are menopausal, anything under 4 mm is considered normal. If you are having menstrual cycles, then the endometrial stripe varies depending on where you are on your cycle. Your endometrium builds throughout your cycle, then during your period 2/3 of it sloughs off. See your gynecologist for more information and diagnosis. ...Read more

I had a Pap smear and doctor said it was abnormal which means I have HPV. Is this true? I don't have any warts so does this mean I have cancer?

I had a Pap smear and doctor said it was abnormal which means I have HPV. Is this true? I don't have any warts so does this mean I have cancer?

No: Cancer is highly unlikely. There are multiple strains of HPV and only a few cause cancer or warts. You should follow your doctor's advice for follow-up tests and take HPV vaccine. For 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. ...Read more

Infection: Unless it is bloody or from your water breaking early, it is likely an infection. Any of those 3 options needs evaluated by your OB asap, as your baby is viable if something indicates need for early delivery, and is susceptible to infection if persists and delivers "through" it. See an OB soon. ...Read more

I had an abnormal pap smear and i had to go for a biopsy this morning. The doctor saw white spots on my cervix. Does this mean i have cancer? Im 25

Don't know: I don't know since the biopsy results are not in yet. White spots on the cervix at colposcopy can also be due to non "cancerous CIN( Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia/Dysplasia). Await the results and talk to your MD about them. ...Read more

After having both ultra sound and mammogram my doctor requested a biopsy .. Does this means I am more likely to have cancer?

After having both ultra sound and mammogram my doctor requested a biopsy .. Does this means I am more likely to have cancer?

Possibly.: It's possible that your doctor is concerned about breast cancer. However, it's just as likely that he or she wasn't convinced that what was seen on mammogram isn't cancerous. If the ultrasound showed a solid (rather than cystic) mass, then s'he is doing the right thing by requesting a biopsy. Best wishes. ...Read more

I am 5 weeks pregnant and had an abnormal pap with stage 3 cells.  The dr. Is going to do a colposcopy with a possible biopsy.  I am very nervous abop?

Good.: Being anxious is an appropriate response to the situation you face. Wait for the results of the colposcopy and biopsy. This will provide you with a more accurate and reliable information set to look at the alternatives. Infection and many other things may produce very abnormal cells which respond to a variety of conservative measures. ...Read more
