Could Endometrium Thickness Of 15mm Be Due To Endometrial Carcinoma?

Im 43...have normal size uterus, normal size ovaries but endometrium is thick at 15mm. Ultrasound was done 5 days before period...doctor suggests GYN visit for possible endometrial carcinoma. Is it likely? My periods are like clockwork, no abnormal bleeding. I do have PCOS.

A 15 mm thick endometrium thickness should be evaluated with a transvaginal ultrasound scan to determine the exact thickness. If thickness is 15mm your gynaecologist might want to take an endometrial biopsy to rule out any chance of malignancy.
Please discuss it with your gynaecologist.
