Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
Are you having any bleeding - because if you are Not having any bleeding - then Unlikely you need to worry.
But you do need to get this evaluated for why this thickening is happening - a Polyp is a very reasonable reason here.
And given you had a normal biopsy SO recently and 5 months ago is recent- you do Not have cancer - that would be very Unlikely
Now to prevent this problem from developing further - the NEXT step I would suggest is Hysteroscopy (a camera in the uterus) to SEE what is actually going on.
But I do NOT think you need to worry about a cancer.
Well Make sure he does the Hysteroscopy PRIOR to the D&C - that way your doctor can see what is going on.
I always look with a Hysteroscope prior to doing a D&C for these reasons.
So, it does sound like your doctor is doing the appropriate thing so far by doing a D&C.
I hope this helps
If you have more questions, please ask
I would NOT worry - your endometrial biopsy was normal very recently.
although thick, it does not seem to be a cancer.
Well see what the result of the D&C is - -your doctor should send the results to the Pathologist to look at the tissue under the microscope - if there is anything concerning - such as Hyperplasia (which is not a cancer) - you might want to consider just getting a hysterectomy- as hyperplasia CAN grow into a cancer within 5 years - so that would be my suggestion.
I wish you well on the D&C/ and hopefully Hysteroscopy too on Thursday

There is a chance - especially if the pathology returns as hyperplasia.
Then the suggestion by most ob/gyn's including myself is to get a hysterectomy - because hyperplasia has a 1 to 50% risk of Turning into a cancer within 5 years.
I wish you well
