Hello and welcome,
I am Dr Madhuri a gynecologist and will be helping you.
I am not sure about the report that you have posted. Is the endometrium 5.5 mm because it is difficult almost impossible to measure 0.5 mm on ultrasound.

Kindly recheck the report and if there are any changes it would help if a correct one is provided. The fundal fibroid may be an incidental finding and is very small. However the endometrium and cysts need a further evaluation considering that she is bleeding. So please get a D and C done to look for the pathology. If a D and C is done then hysteroscopy is not needed as both are used to collect tissue from uterus. In hysteroscopy the inside of the uterus is seen with a camera and at the same time tissue is collected. So either a hysteroscopy or a D and C will be needed. Please discuss this with your doctor before going for the tests.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
