see postmenopausal bleeding is dangerous sign, if at all 8 mm thickness of endometrium is somewhat pointing towards a suggesion of biopsy from endometrium and its already done, if there is cancer(adenocarcinoma) chances that this cancer of 1st stage FIGO/AJCC Stage is 90% and chances of survival after Total abdominal hysterectomy +/- lymphnode sampling +/- adjuvant radiotherapy is fairly high up to 90% at 5 years. so please wait till report and dont worry regarding cancer outcome even if it comes to possitive of cancer
