    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.

    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
