I was referred to gynocology after a couple of weeks of light breeding. I am menopausal and not had a period for nearly 3 years- I am 47. Scan revealed small cyst on ovary ( they weren't concerned about this) and womb lining thickening of 7.6mm. Sent for hysteroscopy and biopsy. Extremely painful experience with no anaesthetic. Surgeon said biopsy would probably come back 'inadequate' but that would be a good thing. He said images looked clear. My question is can they tell alone from a hysteroscopy that there is no cancer? And if it isn't cancer what is causing the thickening of lining? Hope someone can help. He said results would just go back to GP so I won t get opportunity to discuss this.
