User :   I just had an endometrial biopsy. Results show no hyperplasia or atypical. However, it showed prominent hyalinized stroma in several fragments. I only have 3-4 periods a year due to PCOS. I have been having a lot of pain recently and am being seen by gynecological oncologist for r/o ovarian cancer. What do my endometrial biopsy results mean. Should I be concerned. I am 35
Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :   Kindly give me some time to read your post
User :   Ok Thank You
Doctor :   When did you get your biopsy done?
User :   Thursday
Doctor :   Except that you had less frequent periods did you hav white discharge or any other problems ?
User :   I have always had the irregular periods. I have always also had some white discharge for several years. No foul odors or anything else. Periods aren't usually bad until recently. Now the pain is so severe with periods i ended up in ER in June
User :   Paps come back normal
Doctor :   OK,
Doctor :   The hyalinisation of the stroma can be a part of normal regeneration process in the uterine myometrium ( muscle layer ) but the same can be found in Endometrial stromal tumours of the uterus
User :   what is that? Counld these tumors be seen during transvaginal ultrasound or can they be missed easily
Doctor :   It depends on the tumour size
Doctor :   bigger the tumour hence the visibility in TVS
Doctor :   CAT Scan or an MRI can help
Doctor :   To identify the presence of tumour if the size is small
Doctor :   Are you there?
