Dilation and Curettage Procedure

Dilation means to stretch the opening of the cervix to make it wider. Curettage involves removing a tissue sample from the inside of the uterus to be examined more closely under a microscope. Dilation and curettage (D&C) may be used to diagnose or treat conditions that cause abnormal bleeding from the uterine lining or to evaluate for cancer in the uterus. D&C may also be done when a woman is having a miscarriage and tissue remaining from the pregnancy must be removed.
