hi and thanks for the query,
Bleeding in post menopausal women deserves an exclusion of an endometrial anomaly or hyperplasia. This is usually done through a histologic examination by a histopathologist.
I suggest you visit your gynecologist and for this sample of the uterine lining be collected and sent to the pathologist.
I suggest you visit your gyncecologist.
Thanks and best regards,
