Question: Hello, I have a question....I have been having off and on bleeding for several months so I went to the doctor. I was ordered to undergo a transvaginal sonogram which came back normal but thickened endometrial stripe so I hope it is not worrisome. I did my endometrial biopsy as well but am anxious awaiting the results. I am 35, overweight, no kids and my mom had cancer as well so I know I have some risks but is there anyway to know what my risk would be? Thank you!
