A biopsy is a procedure by which a small sample of skin or tissue is removed and tested for abnormalities. During a Endometrial biopsy, a small piece of tissue from the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) is removed for examination under a microscope. The doctor examining your sample will look for abnormalities and possibly signs of cancer.
Typically, women over the age of 35 will have endometrial biopsies. If you are pregnant this procedure will not be possible. But women who are having trouble conceiving may have an endometrial biopsy to see if these problems are linked to her uterus.
