Endometrial Biopsy
An endometrial biopsy is a procedure performed to obtain a small tissue sample from the lining of the uterus, called the endometrium. After the biopsy, the endometrial tissue is examined under a microscope to identify the presence of abnormal cells, or the effects of hormones on the endometrium. The test is done typically for women over the age of 35 to find the cause of ailments such as abnormal menstrual periods, bleeding after menopause, bleeding from taking hormone therapy medications, or thickened uterine lining seen on ultrasound.
