Question: I am 48 with sporadic bleeding. No pain.. I have had an ablation nine years ago and this just started happening for about 5 months off and on? It appears that I have my (spotting brown blood)cycle off and on for about 2 weeks sometimes and then nothing til next month.. which may be normal or not. Is this a sign of cancer?

Brief Answer:
Need to get examined by your doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns about bleeding on and off.

Following is my reply:

1) Bleeding on and off after ablation could be due to various reasons.

2) You need to get examined by your doctor about the possibility of cervical erosion and uterine polyp / fibroid. The possibility of cancer still exists and can only be ruled out by examination.

3) I suggest you get examined by your doctor and get an ultrasound scan if needed to determine the cause of bleeding. An endometrial biopsy might be needed if ultrasound scan shows thick endometrium.

Let me know if you need anymore clarification.

Regards,
Dr. Soumya

okay here goes. Post-menopausal, 53 y/o 300lb woman. Previous history of bilateral oopherectomy (hence post-meno, at at 37) and both tubes removed: endometriosis. HRT for 5 years, then stopped due to inability to regulate bleeding. several endo biopsies and hysteroscopies in the past all negative; HPV test neg, All prev PAP neg. 1 benign polyp removed in 2008, bleeding stopped for about 3 years. para 3, gravida 1. current situation. ENDOMETRIAL BIOPSY results are ENDOMETRIAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA, cribriform type, arising in an ENDOMETRIAL POLYP. Fragments of hemorrhagic proliferative endometrium. The endometrial polyp is extremely hemorrhagic and contains multiple glands demonstrating atypical nuclei and internal cribriforming consistent with EIN. TVUS 2 weeks ago showed 19mm endo thickness.

PELVIC ULTRASOUND: I had a biopsy last Thursday how long do you have to edit before you resume intercourse? What does of this means? HISTORY48 years female : Postmenopausal bleeding Comparison: 4-28-14 pelvic ultrasound Transabdominal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals a retroflexed uterus measuring 11.0 x 5.2 x 4.6 cm. Transvaginal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals several nabothian cysts in the cervix. The endometrial stripe is heterogeneous and exhibits a maximum thickness of 11 mm which is abnormally thickened for a postmenopausal female not on hormone replacement therapy. The uterine myometrium is diffusely heterogeneous, raising the possibility of adenomyosis. Multiple subcentimeter cystic spaces are noted in the endometrium. Neoplasia cannot be excluded. A small amount of free fluid is visible in the pelvis. A posterior, intramural fibroid measures 0.8 x 0.8 x 0.7 cm. The right ovary measures 3.0 x 3.0 x 1.4 cm. A hypoechoic lesion in the right adnexa, measuring 2.2 x 2.0 x 1.0 cm is most suggestive of a paraovarian cyst. The left ovary measures 4.4 x 2.1 x 1.9 cm and contains a 0.8 x 0.7 x 0.7 hypoechoic lesion with an echogenic rim; this lesion is not significantly changed from the prior exam. IMPRESSION: 1. Thickened endometrial stripe containing numerous subcentimeter cystic spaces; neoplasia cannot be excluded. Further evaluation with endometrial biopsy or sonohysterography should be considered. 2. Hypoechoic lesion previously noted in the right ovary is not evident on the current exam. 2. Subcentimeter, hypoechoic lesion in the left ovary which exhibits an echogenic rim is not significantly changed from 4-28-14. A similar lesion was noted on a 10-30-13 pelvic ultrasound,
