Why Would My Doctor Order An Endometrial Biopsy Is That A Cancer Test
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
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. When cells are not entirely normal in their appearance or orderly in their location/organization, you will see such a report. 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
I have slight pinkish discharge after intercourse married and no stds. Doc has done endometrial biopsy and ecc, pap and HPV test all ngtv then why?
Probably normal: First of all, it was a great idea to have this checked out. Pinkish discharge, or spotting, can have a serious cause. But since all your tests were normal, the symptom is probably normal for you. It may be due to a bit of trauma with the skin inside the vagina being irritated during intercourse. If there are spermicidals or other fluids, even semen, then the discharge is diluted -- pinkish. ...Read more
After an endometrial biopsy comes back negative for hyperplasia/cancer. What's the chance of a D&C showing cancer a month later?? Also have a polyp
Had an ultrasound done, came back clear, doing an endometrial biopsy to determine precancerous cells. Is there a chance I have full blown cancer?
Need more info: Are you saying that an endometrial biopsy is being done because of a question of premalignant cells on a Pap smear? If so, an endometrial biopsy should help to clarify that. With a normal ultrasound, it is unlikely that you have "full blown" cancer but the biopsy is important. ...Read more
How accurate is an office hysteroscopy endometrial biopsy &polypectomy in showing cancer or hyperplasia?
Possible Endometrial cancer. Endometrial biopsy normal. Hysteroscopy D&C recommended because lining is 15. What is this suspect of?
Endometrial polyp: If the biopsy was negative, chances are minimal that you have cancer. Most likely, you have a polyp causing the thickened endometrium. The hysteroscopy and D&C will show what is definately going on and allow removal of the tissue. It will also confirm the biopsy results, likely showing no cancer. ...Read more
History of lynch syndrome. Sisters endometrial biopsy said limited tissue available, but benign. Should it be redone to rule out cancer if symptomatic?
Lynch syndrome: Lynch syndrome is an inherited condition that increases your risk of colon cancer and other cancers including endometrial cancer in women. If your sister is symptomatic and does have Lynch syndrome a suboptimal biopsy is not sufficient to rule out endometrial pathology. Further workup is warranted. ...Read more

My doctor attempted to do an endometrial biopsy and had to stop because it was very painful. What are the alternative options I have to to get this d?
Sonogram or sedation: A pelvic sonogram performed by a certified skilled sonographer or a saline sonohysterogram may help decide if an endometrial sampling is really necessary. If your endometrium is "thickened", an office procedure under sedation or paracervical anesthesia is an "alternative option"; otherwise you may need a dilatation of your cervix in an OR or ambulatory surgical unit served by an anesthesiologist ...Read more

58 year old woman with 7 CM endometrial lining, stopped HRT therapy 3 months ago. Endometrial biopsy recommended by doc with d&c or hysterectomy?
Hysteroscopy/ D&C: If you are having postmenopausal bleeding then a hysteroscopy with a D&C is appropriate. About 10% of postmenopausal bleeding may be attributed to cancer. However since you were on hrt, sometimes it can take up to 6 months for bleeding to stop. Given your history that your bleeding (assuming you are having this) the likelihood that it's due to hrt or endometrial polyp is more common than cancer. ...Read more
I had an endometrial biopsy & a IUD inserted. I'm a virgin so I'm positive my Doc. Broke my hymen. If I have Sex will it hurt?? will my hymen grow back?
It doesn't: The pain with first sex idea is overdone. If a woman has a healthy vulva and vagina; if she is very stretchy; if she is happy and relaxed, with lots of natural lubrication; if a guy enters at a good angle, at the right spot; if he moves with small motions until she is well-lubricated and stretched out; there may not be hymen tearing nor bleeding. Ignore the hymen, as it should be of no relevance. ...Read more

My last pap had endrometrial cells in it. My doctor has scheduled an endometrial biopsy from the uterus. I had just started my period at the time of the pap - could this produce the e-cells? What does the presence of the e-cells possibly indicate? What
Likely from period: Yes endometrial cells on a pap smear can come from being on your period. That being said it is not considered normal to have these cells present. When found on a pap especially in women above 35 or with certain risk factors the appropriate next step is an endometrial biopsy to rule out cancer or precancerous cellular overgrowth in the endometrial lining. ...Read more

Mid cycle bleeding all test including endometrial biopsy pap smear pelvic ultrasound harmones normal I'm obese 36 age kids 14, 8 c section?
Unlikely: An endometrial biopsy requires placing a speculum in the vagina. For a virginal woman, it can sometimes be accomplished without disturbing an intact hymen with a very narrow speculum. Many women of the age that would necessitate a biopsy however do not have a narrow intact hymen even if they are virginal. ...Read more
