... I did have an in the office biopsy that is how she we found out i have atypical hyperplasia. She wants to do the d and c to rule out cancer as it can sometimes be missed when a in office biopsy is done. I pray its only AHP then all i need is the hysterctomy and no treatment. ... (9 replies)

... Explain what you mean by dealing with this for 5 years? Hyperplasia...complex and continual can certainly lead to cancer. Since this has been 5 years, a hysterectomy seems reasonable. Do the D&C....see the results and go from there. As well, get a copy of ALL the results of all testing youve had. I had a complete hysterectomy at age 38...never regretted a day of... (9 replies)

... Was the polyp benign? Pre-cancerous? The vast majority of them are benign. They are a nuisance problem only, causing irregular bleeding and stuff. i recently had one removed for that reason. It was benign; as I said, they usually are. A hysterectomy for benign polyps sounds excessive, and I doubt if a reputable doctor would even do it. You'll stop getting polyps after... (7 replies)
... so 7mm would not be considered "too thick." It's normal for the endometrium to get as thick as 16mm when still menstruating. Once you've gone a full year without a period and not taking HRT, they prefer the lining to be no more than 4 or 5mm. ... (11 replies)

... d. I posted about having had a scan last week which my GP said I have to see the gynae dr because they could see a polyp. She said she was going to fast track me as I've been having some brown old discharge between periods. I'm 54 starting meno too. So they fast tracked be and I have an appointment next Friday. ...

... I had an TV ultrasound because of some spotting. I'm 13 years menopausal so this was very unusual. Besides having the same fibroids as the last time I had the test, it said the uterus was 8mm and has somewhat heterogeneous echogenicity. Dr wants a biopsy. Is this worrisome? ... (0 replies)
