Fractional dilatation and curettage is a technique where each section of the uterus is examined and scraped to get samples from all parts of the uterus. Fractional dilatation and curettage is the original diagnostic procedure used to rule out endometrial cancer, which has since been replaced by endometrial biopsy.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its a diagnostic procedure. In this procedure scrapings are taken from cervical canal and uterine lining to look for cancerous cells.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
