Endometrial hyperplasia

Endometrial hyperplasia is an abnormal thickening of the uterine lining (endometrium) that often causes heavy uterine bleeding. If endometrial hyperplasia is not treated, it may progress to endometrial cancer.

Treatment for endometrial hyperplasia includes hormone therapy, a dilation and curettage (D&C), or surgery to remove the uterus (hysterectomy).
