Detailed Answer:

Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX

After analyzing your wife's scan, its a thick endometrial lining for her post-menopausal age. She definitely requires a endometrial biopsy (sampling os endometrial lining- small endometrial tissue is taken) for histopathology. Then depending on the report she needs treatment.

Usually if the biopsy report is normal, then progesterone tablets are helpful, but if there is any abnormal change like ATYPIA, then its better to undergo hysterectomy.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.

Thank you,
Wish you good health.
