No: Definitive cancer diagnosis requires at issue biopsy, which then guides treatment based on the specific characteristics of the tissue. See your doctor if you have any symptoms or suspicions.

No: Unfortunately, endometrial cancer still requires a biopsy to be certain of the diagnosis. Learn more about this here: http://www.Cancer.Org/cancer/endometrialcancer/detailedguide/endometrial-uterine-cancer-diagnosis.
