67 yr. Old woman had uterine biopsy in nov. Which turned out fine. May be spotting again. How reliable are biopsys?
Very, if...: The biopsy result returned by the pathology lab will be accurate; if you want the pathologist to have the case reviewed, your physician can arrange it.

Many of the small polyps (under 1cm) require no treatment or removal particularly if they cause no symptoms ; they will often resolve spontaneously and disappear. Even in older perimenopausal or postmenopausal women, most of these polyps are usually benign. They do not "turn to cancer". ...Read more
