An endometrial biopsy is process to take a small sample of the lining of the uterus (endometrium). The sample is looked at under a microscope for abnormal cells and uterine bleeding, to check for overgrowth of the lining (endometrial hyperplasia), or to check for cancer.
There are several ways to do an endometrial biopsy. Endometrial biopsy is a short procedure, typically only taking about 10 minutes. Endometrial biopsy has many advantages over the more complicated procedure known as dilation and curettage (D&C). There are very few risks with endometrial biopsy like pain or cramping. Pipelle endometrial biopsy is a cost-effective and safe procedure that is well-toleratable.
