Abnormally thickened endometrium from Tamoxifen

I had breast cancer 2004 (lumpectomy). On Tamoxifen 1 year, it caused groin pain, so went to Armidex for 4 yrs.

I had an endometrial biopsy in 2006, everything ok.

Have had ultrasounds since. Most recent 2010 & 2011.

2010 said " very mild abnormal thickening, probably reflects tamoxifen induced endometrial disease. Follow up 6 months." thickening 7-8 mm heterogeneous.

6 months later 2011: "abnormally thickened endometrium is again seen. This is STABLE from previous exams. again could be secondary to tamoxifen therapy. Please correlate clinically" thickness the same as 2010

My Oncologist sent me to an GYN. She was unable to do an endometrial biopsy as too painful. She immediately said "have to do a D & C".

I don't know if I had a TAS or TVS ultrasound done (heard TVS is better)

Have also learned MRI or CT might give clearer results.

I dread the D & C as I am 73; last one I had was at age 41. (not fun)
