IVE just been told that I have a very thick uterine lining

This answer was rated:

IVE just been told that I have a very thick uterine lining and that I will need a D&C to get a biopsy to check for cancer. I am 49 and pre-menopause. Is it that unusual to have a thick uterine lining at my age. They seem to want to remove it. What are the dangers of having a thick uterine lining. If cancer is ruled out is it dangerous to have a thick uterine lining
Hi--uterine hyperplasia does occur most often with menopause and it most often does not indicate cancer but it has to be addressed as your doctor is doing. The point is that, even if it is not cancerous now, left alone the thickening can increase and eventually lead to cancer.
