Histopathology - Endometrial Polyp

I just got my biosy report - can you please explain this;

Gross description: Two pieces of tan coloured tissue
Microscopic description: Sections reveal polypoid pieces of endometrial tissue showing crowding, irregularity and cystic dilatation of proliferative type of glands with an increase of gland to stroma ratio. There is ciliated cell metaplasia. The stroma is focally spindly. There is no evidence of cytologic atypia or malignancy.

Conclusion: Endometrial polyp showing simple hyperplasia of glands and tubal metaplasia.

Thank you!

Your doctor should explain this to you. It sounds like you have (or had) simple hyperplasia versus hyperplasia with atypia. Simple hyperplasia is slightly abnormal cells (but NOT cancer) and is usually curable with medication.

So did you just have polyps removed or did you have a hysterectomy?
