Are you sure you have this right? Or perhaps your friend was confused? Freezing (cryotherapy) is a common treatment for mild cervical abnormalities, including mild dysplasia of the cervix and/or mild endocervical (cells lining the os, or opening into uterus) abnormalities. Both of these are considered cervical conditions, NOT uterine.
It is possible to have mild endometrial hyperplasia (abnormal changes in uterine lining) but freezing is NOT the treatment for this uterine condition.
If you friend is confused about this, she should call her provider and ask for a copy of her lab results.
