Re: Am really nervous
Cheryl, I am sorry you are having to worry about your diagnosis and hope you will have some answers soon and that it is not cancerous.
I am different from you in that I am pre-menopausal at age 41, but I also had a very disturbing experience with an endometrial biopsy done in the doctor's office that was wrong. I had the biopsy because the ultrasound clearly showed that my lining was too thick for the time of month it was in my cycle. Plus, I had been having heavy bleeding for some time, and also spotting in-between periods. So, I had the biopsy done, it came back clear, no hyperplasia or cancerous cells and I was cleared to try to get pregnant. Within a month, I had a D&C done and it came back positive for hyperplasia and pre-cancerous cells (atypia) and they advised me to have a hysterectomy as soon as possible. How can anyone be expected to trust this kind of biopsy when it is obvious that it is only right some of the time? I know that they try to do the in-office biopsies because they are less invasive and don't involve hospitalization and anaesthesia, but when cancer is a possibility, I think they should just tell the patient sorry, but you are going to have to have a D&C if you really want to have a true answer to this question. After all, the in-office biopsy is just a sample from a couple of areas inside the uterus, what about the rest of the area that didn't get sampled?!
