Can anyone tell me if it's standard to have ovarian tissue and uterine tissue biopsied after after having a hysterectomy? I forgot to ask the Dr. if they would do any pathology on the tissue to see if there were any abnormal or malignant cells. I only ask because my mother had ovarian cancer which led to her hysterectomy, and my hyst was initiated because of endo and pituitary related issues.

Hi Cat
I can tell you in CT it is mandatory for any tissue product removed to be biopsied, I'd presume that's standard practice everywhere. Hope this helps.

Yes, it is absolutely mandatory that a pathologist examine and produce their owm report on any tissue removed. You can actually get a copy of this from your Dr. as they are given a copy of this. Generally if there is something obviously wrong, they tell you right away. When my son was diagnosed with cancer, the pathologist was called into the operating room, checked the tissue and we were told right away that it was malignant. All the other tests took more time, but of course they were more detailed. So try to hang in there, and give your Doc. a call. My guess is it will set your mind at ease. Here's to a quick recovery!
