Endometrial hyperplasia can lead to cancer, really?

Endometrial hyperplasia can lead to cancer, really?

It's a indicator: Endometrial hyperplasia (overgrowth of the uterus lining) means that the uterus is being exposed to continuous estrogen, which is a risk factor for endometrial cancer. So it indicates that conditions are favorable for the development of cancer, and it can also allow an early cancer to hide more easily. Atypical hyperplasia means overgrowth of abnormal cells and an even higher risk of cancer. ...Read more

Could a trans-vaginal ultrasound detect endometrial hyperplasia?

Could a trans-vaginal ultrasound detect endometrial hyperplasia?

Hard to be certain: Ultrasound is never 100%, but several findings are suspicious for endometrial hyperplasia or even cancer. For instance, if your lining is excessively thick for your age or if there is a suspicious mass seen within the uterine cavity on the sonogram, hyperplasia or cancer may be present. However, other findings can cause similar images on sonogram. Also, diagnosis can only be made with a biopsy. ...Read more

Are fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia, or polyps a precursor to cancer?

Are fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia, or polyps a precursor to cancer?

Possibly: Fibroids are benign growths of uterine muscle and are not cancerous. Rarely, a fast growing fibroid may in fact be a sarcoma or a cancer. A uterine polyp (like a skin tag in the uterus) can be totally benign or may house hyperlastic cells. Endometrial hyperplasia with atypical cells is considered precancerous and should be treated. Bleeding after menopause should always be evaluated. ...Read more

Are either fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia, or polyps a precursor to cancer?

Are either fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia, or polyps a precursor to cancer?

Yes: A polyp can be cancerous or precancerous. The exact chance of that depends on several factors including age, genetics and other medical problems.

But some woman can develop certain types of uterine cancer that look like fibroids. ...Read more

What does it mean to have endometrial hyperplasia?

What does it mean to have endometrial hyperplasia?

Overgrown lining: The lining of the uterus is called the endometrium. When it is too thick and/or overgrown, it is called hyperplasia. Frequently this is just a benign thickening but it can be atypical (abnormal) or even cancerous. Thickened lining in older women is more worrisome and should be biopsied. It is a diagnosis made by ultrasound, so it is typically found when evaluating abnormal bleeding. ...Read more
