Question: I am 54 years of age. I have had breast cancer followed by chemo and radio therapy. I recently had a biopsy done and the result shows I have a blood clot in my uterus. I do have fibroids. I would like to know what the blood clot means. Thank you

Brief Answer:
Proper biopsy should be done

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Blood clot in the uterus means that there is bleeding from the uterine lining.
It has no other diagnostic importance.
The bleeding can be due to the fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia or endometrial carcinoma.
However, the exact diagnosis can be made by proper endometrial biopsy which yields endometrial tissue and is sent for histopathology.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Thank you. I have an appointment with my gyno on Monday. Should I ask for a hysterectomy as well as the biopsy or wait until after I have had the second biopsy. I really appreciate your advice over the last 24 hours.
