Oligomenorrhea is one of the most common menstrual problem during early years after menarche. Sometimes it may even go ypto 25 years. An ultra sound scan of abdomen will rule out PCOS. It may be managed by various medical protocols. There is no need to worry about endometrial cancer because of this. I guess you are very anxious because of your present problem which may still get aggravated because of your anxiety. So stay cool and your problem will get settled soon. All the best.
