Endometrial biopsy.

I have a fibroid that is 8 cm ..I had abnormal bleeding in August..before that I had normal periods. I had a endo biospy and now I am waiting for the results! I have been bleeding since my biospy..5 days..the doc did mention i had thickening..what does that mean?? I am not even near menopuase..should i be concerned ? thanks.

Re: Endometrial biopsy

It is hard not to be concerned when a doctor wants us to have a biopsy. It is considered not normal to have thickening of the lining, however so many of us do. So they do the biopsy and the vast majority of us are totally fine. I just think that as we age the lining becomes thick unlike when we were in our 20's. That the doctors take the biopsy as a precautionary measure. In the meantime we naturally become stressed waiting for the results. I am sure that your results will be negative too! Hugs... Liz
