While it is normal for the endometrium to thicken and shed during menstrual cycle, abnormal thickening of the uterine lining is a medical condition called endometrial hyperplasia.
The phrase 'endometrial hyperplasia' refers to a complaint that is seen as an thickening with the endometrium, which is lining in the uterus. This abnormal thickening with the uterine lining occurs because of a greater creation of the estrogen within the body as well as a scarcity of progesterone.
Classification of Endometrial Hyperplasia
Though a lot of cases of endometrial hyperplasia are benign in nature, potential risk of endometrial carcinoma can increase if your gland-forming cells in the hyperplastic endometrium undergo certain changes during a period of time. There are two kinds of endometrial hyperplasia:
Hyperplasia without atypical changes
Hyperplasia with atypical changes
In the event of atypical changes, cells undergo changes and turn into abnormal. This puts the affected individual with a probability of developing womb cancer. These two types are further separated into basic and complex hyperplasia without or with atypical changes.
Estrogen accounts for building the uterine lining. The constant maintenance and charge of this growth is carried out in presence of progesterone. An overgrowth of uterine lining is the place there is an excessive amount estrogen and too little of progesterone. Thus, causing thickening with the endometrium. There are various reasons behind surge in estrogen and reduce in progesterone in the bod. Included in this are:
Estrogen hormone therapy without administration of progesterone
Missed menstruation cycle
Polycystic ovarian syndrome
The symptoms include changes during menstrual cycle. Other symptoms are the following:
Bleeding between menstrual period
Heavy and prolonged menstrual periods
Pain from the abdomen
Excessively dry vagina
Increase in development of hair
Painful sexual activity
Rapid pulse rate
Who're at Risk of Developing Endometrial Hyperplasia?
Girls that are at risk of developing thickened endometrium are:
Women who have undergone menopause
Ladies who don't ovulate or have irregular ovulation, that's, late periods
Overweight or obese women
Women with pcos
Endometrial hyperplasia or thickened endometrium may be treatable with medication most of the time. Birth control pills or hormone progesterone is generally given for treatment. Frequently hysterectomy is suggested to eliminate the affected endometrium. Often times hyperplasia can result in cancer therefore the doctor may observe you for some time, unless you undergo hysterectomy. If the woman is exhibiting symptoms associated with a thickened endometrium, a biopsy might be performed to rule out cancer.
So I request you to consult a good gynecologist and find out the cause of thickness of endometrium by going through few investigation so that proper treatment can be started for your mother.
