Hi,

Yes, very much necessary to know the details of endometrial thickness. If it is due to malignancy she will need a hysterectomy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr B. Radhakrishnan. Nair, OBGYN

I have no symptoms of menopause as far as hot flashes, no vaginal dryness, no loss of libido. My only symptom is a thickened endometrial lining of 16mm and bleeding. I have had 69 straight days of a pink watery discharge that sometimes turns brown. Occasionally it is almost like a period but only for a day or so. It has been foul smelling at times as well. I have lower back pain and I am exhausted all the time. I had am endometrial biopsy that showed simple hyperplasia. I am now scheduled for a D&C. Is all do this bleeding and discharge related to peri menopause or is there still a possibility that there is something bigger going on and the first biopsy missed it?
