When I had my biopsy it came back negative for cancer. I did end up having endo but had to have the laparoscopic surgery to get that diagnosis.

Does the endometrial biopsy only show if you have cancer?

Adenomyosis is usually only diagnosed after pathology following a hysterectomy when more of the uterus is examined. A biopsy can easily miss adenomyosis.

An endometrial biopsy is completely ineffective for diagnosing endometriosis as endometriosis exists outside the uterus, not inside. As ((secretarymoss)) mentioned, a laparoscopy is necessary to diagnose endometriosis.

Besides cancer issues, an endometrial biopsy can be done to check to see if your body's hormone levels that affect the endometrium are in balance, to find the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding, to check for overgrowth of the lining (endometrial hyperplasia), to look for acute pelvic inflammatory disease, and acute cervical or vaginal infections.

Hope this helps!
