    Question difference between endocervical curettage and Endometrial Biopsy

    is there a difference between endocervical curettage and Endometrial Biopsy because in the Endometrial Biopsy i see u can use a pipette but in the other you use a curette which seems and sounds more painful. Do both do the same thing?

    An ECC takes a sample from the inside part of your cervix, and endometrial biospy is a biospy on the lining of your uterus. I have had both done, it is uncomfortable but not extremely painful, at least for me.

    lol i hope its just uncomfortable, i have a VERY low threshhold for pain...also i was told that IF i have Cervical Dysplasia it is very mild they said the cell changes are VERY small. So would i need to get one of these? I am having it taken care of before it gets any worse so i wouldnt think i would need to check their correct?

    I had an ECC during a colposcopy to biospy cervical changes, I also have mild dysplasia or Cin 1 . The uterine biospy was done a year before to determine cause of heavy uterine bleeding. I had a condition called benign hyperplasia.

    You should not need an endometrial biopsy if you have cervical dysplasia. The endometrial lining is in the uterus and is uninvolved with early cervical dysplasia, whereas the endocervical canal can be involved. Fortunately, endometrial biopsy is much more uncomfortable than ECC.

    The cells involved in most (7/10) cervical dysplasia is squamous. However, in about 3/10 cases it is glandular. In the instances of glandular involvement, a doctor will typically do an endometrial biopsy (during the CKC) to determine if the glandular cells in the uterus are involved or not.

    If you have squamous cell dysplasia, at your age, I don't think an ECC would be deemed appropriate. Of course, you can always ask your doctor what he/she recommends. He/she can explain his/her reasoning on performing one or not.

    I just had both procedures on this past Friday. Both were very uncomfortable and painful. I just hope my results come back good. I am terribly worried about what may be the problem.
