What is disordered proliferative endometrium?

Disordered proliferative endometrium is a non-cancerous change that develops in the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus. This diagnosis means that after examining your tissue sample under the microscope, your pathologist saw irregular and dilated endometrial glands in the proliferative phase (growing phase).

Disordered proliferative endometrium is a descriptive diagnosis that needs to be considered together with your medical history, physical examination, and any other tests that were performed (blood work, imaging tests, etc.). Your doctor will use all of this information in order to determine the final diagnosis and reason for this condition.
