Maybe: If had a biopsy a year ago and your doctor ruled out cancer as cause of your thickened lining, and you're not having any irregular bleeding, then you might be okay. An endometrial biopsy is only good for 1 year, so it may be time to discuss any uterine conditions with your doctor again. Lots of small fibroids often do not need to be operated on, especially close to menopause. Call dr for appt.
