What happens during endometrial cancer screening?

Women who are at high risk for developing endometrial cancer or hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer should consider a yearly endometrial biopsy to check for endometrial cancer. A typical screening may include:
  • Biopsy: A thin, flexible tube is inserted through your vagina into the uterus to remove a sample of cells from the lining of the uterus. The cells are then examined under a microscope for signs of cancerous changes.
  • Transvaginal ultrasound: A specially designed ultrasound probe is inserted into your vagina to detect abnormalities in your uterus.
