62 year old female with vaginal bleeding – Step 2 CK

by / Wednesday, 09 June 2010 / Published in OB/GYN

A 62 year old woman comes to you complaining of vaginal bleeding:

1st step – get an endometrial sample

If there is NO cancer from this sample, then the MCC of the bleed is Atrophy

IF there IS cancer, the next step is to perform a hysterectomy

      Hi Sharon,

      Vaginal bleeding after menopause must always be further evaluated by a physician. Please seek advice from your physician.
