Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,postmenopausal bleeding needs to be evaluated as it can be a sign of endometrial cancer.
However, there are other possible causes that are not cancer-related.
The most common cause of post-menopausal bleeding is atrophy, or thinning of the lining of the uterus due to a loss of estrogen. The thinning of the lining leads to erosions and inflammation of the lining and causes light bleeding or spotting.

Other causes include polyps, hyperplasia (overgrowth of the lining), and rarely cervical bleeding due to cervical polyps or other cervical lesions.

You should see your ob/gyn and undergo an ultrasound of the pelvis (uterus) and possibly an endometrial biopsy for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Waiting for your response.

Thanks.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
