Hello

Your ultrasound findings suggests possibility of endometrial polyp.
Endometrial polyps are usually benign but some may be precancerous or cancerous.In only about 0.5% of endometrial polyps contain adenocarcinoma cells(cancer cells).
Polyps can be surgically removed using curettage with or without hysteroscopy.
