How is Endometrium biopsy test done?
The biopsy test is done with or without anesthesia, the patient is asked to lie on the back with her feet straight.
First, a pelvic examination is done followed by insertion of a speculum inside the vagina.
Then, cervix is grasped with an instrument (tenaculum) to steady the uterus. Followed by insertion of a small, hollow plastic tube into the uterine cavity and a suction apparatus attached to the tube sucks out a small section of the lining.
The tissue sample and instruments are removed after collecting the sample and the sample is examined under the microscope by a pathologist.
