Very unlikely: If you are saying you had a polypectomy and a sampling of the endometrial lining a few months ago in September then it is high unlikely that a new 2 cm mass in the cavity is now cancer. Your doctor can provide treatment options

Agree with the above. Patient will need another hysteroscopy with D & C if the polyp is symptomatic.
