Re: does an 18mm thick endometrial lining mean I have cancer

Not that I know of. There could be other reasons for uterine lining thickening like adenomyosis. It sounds like you've received a copy of your pathology report. What has your doctor said? What is the next step?


I suspect your doctor might do a biopsy. I had a D&C with endometrial biopsy back in April when I was having another procedure.

Re: does an 18mm thick endometrial lining mean I have cancer

I just went through this last November. Do you still have periods? If so, this is probably normal. If you no longer get periods than your doctor will probably do an endometrial biopsy. This is an office procedure that takes about a total of 10 minutes. Some women find it very uncomfortable others like myself really did not have any problems. If the biopsy comes back normal, then the doctor will probably treat it with a prescription of progestrone. Progestrone will allow the lining to be shed.

I had a surgical procedure called a hystroscope/d&c because I can no longer take any hormones. It turns out that I had a large polyp (non cancerous) removed from the wall of my uterus.

I hope this gives you the information that you need.
