I had breast cancer 1 year ago and have been on Tamoxifen. My pelvic US showed abnormal thickening of the endometrial lining. Dr. tried to do a biopsy in the office but couldn't because of cervical stenosis (I had cervical cancer 20 years ago). Went to hospital and had an D & C and hysteroscopy in Sept. but this was unsuccessful and Dr. didn't get to the tissue for a biopsy. Went back last week to have it done again and Dr. did a LEEP procedure. I just found out that this too was unsuccessful. Dr. doesn't know what to do other than a hysterectomy. I have no symptoms and don't understand why Dr. couldn't get a biopsy even after a LEEP? Has anyone had anything like this?
