Stem Cell Therapy for Endometrial Hyperplasia-Hope Medical Group

The Endometrium is the lining of the uterus, and on imaging tests like ultrasounds, the lining is referred to as the endometrial stripe. Increased thickening of the endometrial stripe may be indicative of precancerous or cancerous changes in the uterus and needs to be evaluated promptly. Once the underlying cause of the endometrial thickening is determined, treatment can be administered.

Endometrial hyperplasia describes an abnormal and excessive overgrowth of cells in the inner lining of the uterus, which is called the endometrium. This is not a cancerous condition in itself, but needs to be monitored and treated to help reduce the risk of developing endometrial cancer, as the multiplying of cells can result in precancerous cell changes, says Holmes. Approximately one-third of women with endometrial hyperplasia will later develop endometrial cancer. Symptoms of this condition include heavy menstrual periods, bleeding between periods and extended periods of time without menstruating. The Obstetricians and Gynecologists states that the hormone progesterone is a commonly used treatment for the condition, and in cases where the endometrial cells are significantly abnormal and there is a risk of cancer developing, a hysterectomy may be necessary.

According to the Cancer Society, Endometrial Cancer, also called uterine cancer, is cancer originating from the endometrium. There are different kinds of uterine cancers, but endometrial cancers are typically classified as carcinomas or adenocarcinomas. More than 80 percent of endometrial cancers are adenocarcinomas, and are called endometrioid. Endometrioid cancers are composed of cancer cells in glands resembling the endometrium. Endometrial cancers are classified into three different grades that describe their severity and aggressiveness. Risk factors for developing endometrial cancer as listed by the Cancer Society include fluctuating hormone levels, estrogen therapy, obesity, having polycystic ovarian syndrome, ovarian tumors and older age. Symptoms of the disease are unusual bleeding or spotting, pelvic pain, weight loss, abnormal vaginal discharge or a pelvic mass.


Endometrial Polyps
are small, soft, growths in the lining of your uterus. Endometrial polyps grow very slowly.

You may have 1 or many endometrial polyps. Sometimes endometrial polyps protrude through the vagina, causing cramps. The cramps occur because when the endometrial polyps protrude through the vagina, they impinge on the opening of the cervix.

If the polyps become twisted and lose their blood supply, they can become infected. Polyps only rarely turn cancerous. However, some women with endometrial polyps will have difficulty becoming pregnant.

Endometrial polyps can be surgically removed. After the polyp is removed, the patient can return to work in a few days. The most common side effect is a little spotting for a few days.
