Patients with endometrial hyperplasia usually appear well. The clinical presentation for endometrial hyperplasia is the same as for endometrial carcinoma. Endometrial hyperplasia typically presents with abnormal uterine bleeding. It is most common in women who are perimenopausal or early postmenopausal. Endometrial Hyperplasia is common with increasing age in premenopausal women.
Physical examination of patients with Endometrial Hyperplasia is usually normal.

- Weak/bounding pulse / pulsus alternans / paradoxical pulse / asymmetric pulse
