I am post menopausal 66 yrs old. I recently had and still am having light bleeding. I had pap which came back ok and my lab work as well was ok. I had a pelvic and trans vaginal ultra sound. Showed no masses or tumors in either ovary or uterus.

The endometrial measure 20mm. The ovaries and uterus measured normal range. Due to the fact of being 15 plus years post cardiac bypass and overweight glucose kinda up and down and because of the intensity and violence of chemo and radiation i am considering no surgeries etc i am looking for opinions of others thank you

Thank you for your answer. I have an appt this week and I’m expecting the doctor will suggest s biopsy. I am trying to see the bigger picture and prepare myself for decisions I may have to make and questions to ask this doctor when I see her

Hello. Thank you for posting.

Endometrial hyperplasia describes a condition in which the lining of the uterus, called the endometrium, becomes too thick. The condition itself is not cancerous; however, it sometimes can lead to uterine cancer. Has your doctor suggested a biopsy because of the endometrial thickness? You mention chemo and radiation, but not that you have been diagnosed with cancer.

I hope some of our members can share their experiences and therefore their opinions with you as you have asked.
