The dilation and curettage procedure is performed to take out tissue from the uterus in order to treat uterine conditions such as heavy bleeding or clear the lining of the uterine after a miscarriage.
Dilation and Curettage are usually suggested if you are experiencing abnormal uterine bleeding, bleeding after menopause, or abnormal endometrial cells are discovered during a test for cervical cancer.
The operation entails using small instruments or medication to dilate your cervix, then a curette will be used to remove the uterine tissue either by suction or with a sharp curette. Your tissue sample will then be tested to check for uterine cancer, uterine polyps, or endometrial hyperplasia (a precancerous condition that causes the uterine lining to be too thick).
As a part of the therapeutic dilation and curettage process the entire contents of your uterus will be removed to take out anything from a molar pregnancy, to treating excessive bleeding, removing cervical or uterine polyps, removing fibroid tumors, and clearing out any remaining tissue from a miscarriage.
Dilation and Curettage is designed to help assess the source of pain and bleeding in the uterus or to remove any abnormal growths in order to treat a condition. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms visit Awazen in Abu Dhabi.
