Brief Answer:
Biopsy done to rule out malignancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

Your endometrium has an increased thickness. It can happen due to hormonal influence or malignancy. This needs a biopsy to rule out any malignancy or polyps. D&C is the only way to do a biopsy. It is best to wait for the results and rule out any endometrial pathology.

Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
