PATIENT HISTORY

AUB is the hallmark symptom of both endometrial hyper-plasia and cancer.

 

Further evaluation to rule out underlying carcinoma is warranted in two general scenarios: (1) a postmenopausal woman with any bleeding who is not on hormone replace-ment therapy, or (2) a premenopausal woman with AUB in the presence of additional risk factors (family history of breast, colon, or gynecologic cancer; obesity; prior endometrial hyperplasia; chronic anovulation; tamoxifen use; or estrogen therapy).
