just looking for some advice. I’ve recently had an endometrial biopsy which has come back as showing no cancer and no atrophy, according to the gynaecologist secretary, not had anything in writing or phone call from the hospital no doubt will be in the post sometime.
Ive just looked at my patient access notes and the gynaecologist has written to my surgery, he has requested I go for an ultrasound, which I expected so no problem with that. It’s just the wording he’s used and I’m a bit unsure as to what it means. He said he wanted to rule out ‘significant uterine pathology’. Can anybody or the nurses give any advice as to what this means in simple terms. I’m thrilled that no cancer what detected but today I’ve also been reading that biopsy’s alone aren’t as totally accurate as only a small amount of endometrial tissue can be swabbed. Apparently 14% of women who went on to have a hysterectomy had cancer and it had been missed with biopsy alone.
any advice would be appreciated
