In brief: Endometrial Hyperpla
Endometrial hyperplasia is typically seen in older, peri- or post-menopausal women, and consists of a thickening of the endometrial lining due to excess estrogen effect.
Ordinary hyperplasia, for a short period of time is minimally dangerous as far as cancer, but prolonged hyperplasia - for many months can result in "atypical hyperplasia, " which increases the risk. If concerned, consult your gyn.

In brief: Pre-cursor
If you have endometrial hyperplasia this does not mean you have cancer, there are other causes.
However, it is generally accepted that ehp is a pre-csor to uterine cancer. Dr. J.
