Endometrial hyperplasia is defined as the excessive proliferation of cells of the inner lining of the uterus, known as the endometrium. This occurrence is generally considered to be a precursor to the development of endometrial cancer and has been shown to be the result of unopposed estrogen, as seen in cases of exogenous estrogen therapy, anovulatory cycles, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), or obesity.

What are the symptoms of endometrial hyperplasia?

Those with endometrial hyperplasia may present with:

Abnormal menstrual bleeding that doesn’t match with menstrual cycles
Heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding
Short menstrual periods less than 21 days
Vaginal discharge
Vaginal bleeding in postmenopausal women
