I am 48 years who lives a quite healthy lifestyle, not overweight, exercise and eats healthy. I am in perimenopause and started to have spotting for two months. I have been experiencing mild-severe menopausal symptoms for quite a few years. Went to my doctor and he recommended a biopsy and tried to have this done in his office but he was unable to do because I have a tipped uterus. I had an ultrasound to check for the thickness of my lining. He advised that it was thick and that I should have the endometric biopsy inpatient in the hospital. He noted that the ultrasound did not look cancerous and that it could be a multiple reason including possible clotting or possible precancerous. I am currently having no periods. I will be having this procedure soon.
Can you advise of other possibilities this maybe besides endrometric cancer? What are the percentage of women who are being diagnosed with this condition? I am very nervous about this.
Hi , I am 43 and I just have been diagnosed with uterine hyperplasia after having prolonged bleeding. Dr said it is a thickening of the uterine lining from overgrowth of cells usually due to lack of progesterone. I am on a hormone treatment (Provera ) for 3 months & then another uterine biopsy. Good luck & let me know how it goes.
