Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Unexpected vaginal bleeding is a common problem in general medical practice and likely to increase as more women use hormone replacement therapies (HRT). This study looks at the successful introduction of a technique for endometrial sampling into general practice, allowing earlier diagnosis of endometrial cancer and reassurance for women without serious pathology.
