Endometrial Biopsy

Endometrial biopsy is a diagnostic procedure that involves the sampling of tissue from the endometrium (lining of the uterus).  It may be used to diagnose endometrial hyperplasia or cancer.  The endometrial biopsies may be taken in the office using a pipelle (thin, strawlike instrument).  Another method for endometrial sampling involves the use of hysteroscopy.
