This preparation is made from a sagittal section of the uterus, which is why it may look weird. Three lesions are visible:
A thecofibroma, a benign ovarian tumor. It is yellowish.
An endometrial carcinoma. It shows all the typical characteristics of a malignant tumor, like lack of capsule, infiltrative border and poorly circumscribed.
Diagnosis: Endometrial carcinoma, with thecofibroma and leiomyoma
- Increased levels of oestrogen
- Metabolic syndrome
Some teachers disagree that the thecofibroma is a thecofibroma. I don’t know what they suggest it actually is, though.

So I heard
Could it be a lipoma ?
I don’t know
Professor Bela said that some teachers think its a big lump of adipose tissue. But he thinks that is bs and that it is a thecofibroma
