Biopsy endometrial is a type of examination process in which an infected tissue is taken out from the woman’s uterus for examination.

Doctors take a sample of this tissue in this procedure and do examination about the infection of cancer and any other severe disease over there. The infected tissue will be removed from the uterus and sent to the laboratory for analysis under a microscope.

Doctors will use an instrument which is called speculum and that will be put into the vagina to hold it open and see the cervix and from there doctors can take out the infected tissue.
Doctors will also use tenaculum to hold the uterus steady because the cervix should be cleaned with an antiseptic liquid. However, doctors use a device which is called a cervical dilator for stretching the cervical canal if there is tightness in some of the cases. After that hollow plastic tube is gently passed into the uterine cavity to take out a sample of the lining and this sample will be taken to the laboratory for doing research under microscope observation.
