Brief Answer: Considerations Detailed Answer: Hello and thank you for submitting your question. The findings are a description of benign endometrium and benign endocervix. The pathologist--who is the doctor that received your biopsy, examined it with a microscope, then made the diagnosis--also saw effects in the endometrial tissue which are caused by normal hormonal changes seen around/after menopause. Also, the report indicates that the amount of tissue sampled by your doctor in the office was not a lot. The main thing is that the tissue examined was negative for any malignant or pre-malignant changes. If the bleeding continues, it would be good to see your doctor again for further investigation. I hope this helps clarify the results of the biopsy and that you have continued good health in the new year. Sincerely, Dr G
