Hyperplasia or thickened endometrium is a condition, where the lining of the uterus becomes too thick. The thickened endometrium lining leads to abnormal bleeding. Thickened endometrium causes are too much estrogen in the body, irregular menstrual cycle and deficiency of progesterone. The thickened endometrium or hyperplasia is a non-cancerous condition.

Classification of Thickened Endometrium
The glands forming cells of the hyperplastic endometrium undergo changes when they are predisposed to the cancerous formation. There are two types of endometrial hyperplasia:
Hyperplasia without atypical changes
Hyperplasia with atypical changes
In case of atypical changes, the cells are changed and become abnormal. This increases the risk of developing womb cancer.

Symptoms of Thickened Endometrium
The symptoms of thickened endometrium include:
Vaginal discharge
Bleeding between menstrual cycle
Heavy and prolonged menstrual periods
Pain in the abdomen
Pelvic pain

Diagnosis of Thickened Endometrium
The diagnosis of thickened endometrium depends on your age and how long have you been suffering from thickened endometrium. The doctor may carry out a biopsy before carrying out thickened endometrium treatment and also to rule out cancer.

Thickened Endometrium Treatment
Endometrial hyperplasia or thickened endometrium can be treated with medication in many cases. Birth control pills or hormone progesterone is usually given as medication for thickened endometrium treatment. Most often hysterectomy is advised as thickened endometrium treatment. Many times hyperplasia may lead to cancer and therefore the doctor may observe you for some time, if you do not undergo hysterectomy. Read more on women's health.
