What is hyperplasia?
Depending on your age and how long you have had hyperplasia, your doctor may want to do a biopsy before beginning treatment to rule out cancer.
How is hyperplasia treated?
- Hormone treatment with birth control pills or progesterone helps some women who have hyperplasia.
- Hysterectomy is often recommended to treat hyperplasia. Because some types of hyperplasia can lead to cancer, your doctor will watch your condition carefully if you choose not to have a hysterectomy.
