Hyperplasia of the uterus: the problems of the mucous membrane
February 4, 2012
Any woman twice a year, it is important to show the gynecologist to identify possible gynecological diseases. The problem is that many gynecological diseases are not serious in the early stages eventually become dangerous because of the possibility of development of malignant tumors.
What hyperplasia of the uterus, its causes and types
Hyperplasia is called the inner layer of the uterus growth that is mucosa that covers its inside. To understand how and why this happens, we must remember, as a "working" woman's menstrual cycle. He is known, consists of two phases. During the first phase under the influence of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and pituitary hormones estrogen female egg maturation takes place in the ovary and the growth of the mucous membrane of the uterus - she is going to accept an embryo. As soon as the egg matures, hormonal changes a woman: the amount of estrogen is reduced dramatically and are replaced by the female sex hormone progesterone
Progesterone - norm and pathology
And luteinizing hormone (LH) pituitary that stimulates the production of progesterone. Under the influence of hormones the second half of the menstrual cycle, if no pregnancy, the mucous membrane gradually begins to shrink in size, and then rejected with concomitant bleeding (menstruation) and the menstrual cycle begins anew.
When endometrial hyperplasia
Hyperplasia endometrial cancer - requires timely detection and treatment
impaired hormonal support menstrual cycle produces many hormones of the first half (the estrogen and FSH), and the second half a little hormones (progesterone and LH). As a result, the egg can not leave the ovary (anovulatory cycle and infertility), mucous membrane considerably expands, and when it is still rejected, it is accompanied by significant bleeding.
The mucous membrane of the endometrium grows in different ways, so endometrial hyperplasia may be different: glandular, glandular-cystic, atypical (cells changed their appearance - adenomatosis or adenomatous hyperplasia) and focal (in the form of polyps).
The most dangerous are atypical lobular hyperplasia, and, since they can eventually move into a malignant tumor. However, any kinds of uterine hyperplasia require constant supervision as they can cause cancer.
Hyperplasia of the uterus may occur for various reasons. For example, in violation of the hormonal function of the ovaries or pituitary gland, adiposity (fat cells can self-produce estrogen), a variety of pelvic inflammatory disease, which lead to hormonal disruption, endometriosis (swelling of the lining of the uterus in other tissues, such as in the muscular layer of the uterus or ovarian), tumors of the uterus (such as fibroids), polycystic ovary (while also disturbed hormonal), after operations on the ovaries, uterus and its appendages, and so on. It may be hyperplasia of the uterus and on the background of endocrine diseases such as diabetes mellitus
Diabetes - threatening and incurable disease
, As well as consistently high blood pressure, severe liver disease, and so on.
Hyperplasia of the uterus may be asymptomatic, especially in the early stages of the disease. But the most frequent sign of it are rare, but very heavy menstrual bleeding. Sometimes, in addition to having menstrual bleeding and intermenstrual bleeding. There may also be a small amount of bleeding before or after menses and mid-cycle bleeding or constant over an extended time. When a large regular blood loss in women may develop hypochromic (iron deficiency) anemia.
Diagnosis and treatment
Hyperplasia - do not be afraid
uterus most often during ultrasound (US). If you suspect this pathology is performed by special vaginal ultrasound probe. During this study, we can determine the degree of thickening and proliferation of the uterine mucosa. If the diagnosis is confirmed, it is carried out hysteroscopy - a study of the uterine cavity using a special optical devices, during which the doctor carefully examines the mucous membrane and takes a piece of tissue for histological examination (biopsy). This is very important because the only way to establish the form of hyperplasia and the risk of developing uterine cancer.
Treatment of hyperplasia can be conservative - it is carried out after the blood analysis on hormones mainly progesterone drugs, as well as operational - scrape the uterine cavity, removing the mucosa with subsequent histological examination. If you suspect a rebirth in cancer of the uterus is removed.
