Had endometrial biopsy. Doc said no cancer was found but it showed "disorganized cells". Waiting for gyn call. What does disorganized mean? What  do?

Not entirely normal: Unless we can see the formal pathology report, it is hard to tell exactly what it means.

It simply means to recheck them again in the future so that your doctor can keep an eye on the observed changes which can either settle down with time or rarely, progress to cancer. ...Read more

Then you may feel some tugging on the cervix while a small catheter is placed inside the cavity of the uterus. This feels like another stronger and sharper menstrual cramp but lasts less than 15 seconds. ...Read more
