The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists has issued new guidelines about the sign and symptoms of endometrial hyperplasia – an abnormal thickening of the lining of the uterus – which can, in some cases develop into endometrial cancers.

Endometrial hyperplasia is a thickening of the lining of the womb which is caused by overgrowth of the cells that line the womb. In some women it can develop into womb cancer, the most common gynaecological cancer with over 8,500 diagnoses each year. The incidence of endometrial hyperplasia is estimated to be at least three times higher. Most women diagnosed with womb cancer have had their menopause with almost three quarters of cases in women aged 40 to 74.”
