Done TVS and pelvic ultrasound. Done blood test. Can I avoid D&C?

I had TVS and pelvic Ultrasound yesterday, endometrium lining is 16 mm. I have been recommended D&C to rule out malignancy . I find D&C under GA too invasive. I have also given blood samples, reports are awaited. Does my blood test report not reveal any malignancy? I want to know whether i can avoid D&C. Is there any way to ascertain that my endometrium is not malignant.

Hi thanks for your question.
Blood test cannot diagnose endometrail cancer and there is no way out other than D&C to rule out endometrail cancer.
It is very small procedurly done under general anaesthesia will hardly take 15 minutes and you will be back home same day.
Hope this answers your question
