ECC or LEEP for AGUS??

Hi -

I recently had a PAP result "atypical glandular cells present, indeterminate." An endocervical and endometrial biopsy was recommended. My gyn scheduled me for a pelvic ultrasound, LEEP and endometrial.

Is LEEP appropriate for an endocervical biopsy or is ECC a better method?

I'm also concerned about having to wait 3 weeks for the procedure.

Thanks for any information.

Re: ECC or LEEP for AGUS??

The wait may be appropriate in order to give your cervix time to heal from your pap.

I've seen that most doctors recommend a cold knife cone biopsy instead of a LEEP when there is suspected glandular cell involvement. The LEEP singes the edges of the tissue sample which makes it difficult to determine if all of a lesion has been biopsied. The CKC doesn't damage the edges of the sample.

When I had my CKC my doctor did another ECC and also did an endometrial biopsy.

I hope that helps.l
