What is a biopsy of the Endometrium?

A biopsy involves taking a tissue or organ fragment from such an area of interest at a clinical or radiological control point. The biopsy occurs via a needle, speculum examination, or conventional surgery on any organ.
It can reliably establish or confirm a diagnosis through various analytical methods.
A biopsy is widely used in the study of oncology and certain autoimmune diseases. The biopsy samples collected will be quickly sent to the pathological dissection laboratory, where they will be fixed in formalin for 12 to 24 hours, then placed in paraffin blocks, cut into 3 µm thick, and then colored and analyzed under a microscope through a pathologist. It should not be confused with cytological analysis, which involves analyzing cells without diagnosing tissue structure.
What is an endometrium?
The endometrium refers to the lining of the uterus that covers the interior of the uterus. Indeed, a uterus is a hollow muscle composed of a broad upper part called the cervix and a narrow lower part that denotes the cervix. Its function is controlled by the hormones produced by the ovaries (estrogen and progesterone).
The body of the uterus comprises three layers :
•    An uterine serum.
•    A myometer.
•    An endometrium consists of the first layer of the cells that make up the epithelium and the connective tissue containing the uterine glands.
Usually, the cancers of the uterine body evolve according to the cells that make up the epithelium of the endometrium: these are adenocarcinomas. There are rarer forms: sarcoma and leiomyosarcoma. This type of cancer usually affects postmenopausal women.

Endometrial biopsy in Istanbul Turkey

A biopsy of the endometrium is a sample of the lining of the uterus used for pathological examinations, allowing to analyze of its cells under a microscope. The exam is a bit sensitive and may be performed without hospitalization.

The sampling may be sensitive or even painful.

How does the exam take place in Istanbul Turkey?

Following consultation in one of the best clinics in Istanbul Turkey, the doctor begins with an endoscopic examination by introducing a small double-shell device used to separate the vaginal wall and reveal the cervix, then carefully inserts a thin stem to remove a small piece of the mucous membrane. The whole process lasts only a few seconds, and there is nothing more embarrassing than the discomfort when removing a speculum or laying an IUD.
What is probably more annoying, but very brief, is if the doctor has to pull on the neck with a special clamp, to put the hole back in the axis.
After the procedure, the examination of the biopsy may lead to the appearance of small bleeding and even if rare but infection is possible: in case of fever or pain, consult the doctor without hesitation.
