Re: Uterine Lining
Please don't think for a moment that it means you have cancer. I'm 54 and my uterine lining had enlarged to 21! I was scared out of my wits that it was cancer since I have several high risk factors for uterine cancer (obesity, high blood pressure, late onset of menopause) bu I had a D&C, biopsy and hysteroscopy such that my doctor could look inside my uterus to make sure everything is ok! A huge polyp was growing in my uterus so he performed a polypectomy and removed it. My biggest advice is pray about it, and then go to a doctor who will do what needs to be done to evaluate why your uterine lining is enlarging. That means ultrasound, then D&C, biopsy and hysteroscopy, which is the ONLY way to find out what is going on. Until then, don't worry, because what your doctor said is so wrong. Just becuase your uterine lining enlarges DOES NOT mean it's cancer!!!!!!!!
