Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Firstly, the fibroid is really big. It needs to be surgically operated. Otherwise, you should face many problems.

Secondly, The endometrial wall thickness is mildly increased. For this, you need a biopsy.

If your family has already been completed, then it is better to go for hysterectomy.

Hormone therapy and D&C will not be helpful in this condition.

Regards.
