my mother also had bleeding and a thickening of the endometrium lining. she was diagnosed with clear cell carcinoma which had spread from the ovaries into the uterus and into the bowel, she has had a full hysterectomy and a colostomy and is now waiting chemo, the prognosis is not good for this type of cancer....get it checked out!!! good luck
