Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

A "thickened myometrium " can indicate either adenomyosis or fibroids, neither of which are significantly "pre-malignant". An endometrial dimension of "6 mm" may be entirely normal, and dependent on the time the ultrasound was performed in your hormonal cycle. At age "33", the risk of uterine cancer is extremely minimal.
