How often does a thickening of the uterus mean cancer?
My name is Brittany. I am new to the board. My mom is 50 years old and has had problems with heavy bleeding and bad cramps for years now. Recently, she missed her period a couple months and thought she may be going through menopause but then the bleeding started again. Because she hasn't gone a significant amount of time without a period, she figured she has not gone through menopause yet. Because of the heavy bleeding and terrible cramps, she asked her gyn about a hystorectomy. He did the utltra sound test to make sure she was a candidate I guess and my mother got a call today that the test showed her uterus is abnormally thick and she needed to come back in for another test to make sure it isn't Uterine Cancer. I am worried sick! I started to read up on it but can't seem to find anything specific on what a thick lining of the Uterus means for a woman like my mom. I love my mom and am scared. Does anyone know how likely she is to have cancer or does anyone have a simular experience? Any insight with knowledge or experience would be much appreciated. Please help!
