An endometrial biopsy is a procedure in which a sample of endometrial (uterine lining) tissue is obtained using a tube which is inserted into the uterus. The tissue sample is examined under a microscope to determine if cancer or other abnormal cells are present. An endometrial biopsy procedure is often performed in a doctor's office.
