What else could it be?

Recenly I had a pelvic exam at my drs after experiencing itching, burning, and pain in lower abdomen. My dr said she felt what she thought was fibroids and ordered an ultra sound. The ultra sound results are as follows:

Uterus measures 10.7 x 5.4 x 6.6 cm. Cervical nabothian cysts. Endometrium measures 2.5 cm and is slightly heterogeneous. Myometrium is hetrogeneous. No dominant fibroid. Right ovary measures 3.5 x 2.4 x 2.5 cm and left ovary measures 2.3 x 1.8 x 2.2 cm . No adnexal mass or free fluid.

My question is she now ordered a endometrial biopsy besides cancer what other conditions could cause this?

Re: What else could it be?

Query (?) possible "endometriosis"- endometrial biopsy should determine if there is a malignancy, hopefully not! Do you have any of the risk factors for endometrial cancer - e.g. post-menopausal, overweight, smoker, hypertensive, high animal fat diet?
I wish you the very best -
