Endometrial hyperplasia is the abnormal thickening of the lining of the uterus due to an increase in the number of endometrial glands. This disorder most often affects young women who are just beginning to menstruate and older women
approaching menopause. In some women, microscopic examination of endometrial tissue may reveal abnormalities in cellular nuclei, a precancerous disorder sometimes referred to as atypical adenomatous hyperplasia, which may lead to endometrial (uterine) cancer.
Endometrial hyperplasia most often is caused by excess estrogen without progesterone. If ovulation does not occur, progesterone is not made, and the lining is not shed. The endometrium may continue to grow in response to estrogen. The cells that make up the lining may crowd together and may become abnormal.
Endometrial Hyperplasia symptoms may include:
1. Vaginal bleeding between menstrual periods or after menopause.
2. Heavy menstrual bleeding.
3. Periods that last longer than usual.
4. Pain during sexual intercourse.
5. Amenorrhea (absence of menstrual periods)
6. Anovulatory periods (menstrual cycles without ovulation)
