Ultrasound showing thickened endometrium. History of ovarian cysts and fallopian tube removal. Chances of cancer?

I am 43 yrs old, 6 feet tall, and weigh 188 lbs. Just over 10 years ago I had my ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in two seperate surgeries due to cysts . All was binine and they would not remove my uterus because it was healthy. I have been on the Climera Pro patch ever since and other than some brown spotting a couple of times a year I have not had a period since then. I recently began having what appeared to be a period. After seeing my gyn and having an ultra sound we discovered that my uterus is 10mm thick. I have scheduled a biopsy for next week however, my imagination is running wild. What are the chances that it is cancer vs a hormonal imbalance. I have also noticed weight gain in my face and around my middle even though I have actually lost a few lbs. in recent weeks and have had night sweats every night for weeks now

Hi, there might be harmonal imbalance, due to imbalance of external harmones, and age changes. Any how harmonal essy is important for coming to a conclusion. So i advise you to consult an endocrinologist for diagnosis and treatment. As you are getting the biopsy done you can have a clear idea of the diagnosis. Thank you.
