I am 57 years old and had an ultrasound and a biopsy for a 10.6mm thick endometrium. Is this likely to be non serious?

Be patient: Your biopsy report should be back within 4 days in most institutions. Post menopausal endometrial thickening can be due to benign conditions such as polyps, simple hyperplasia, scarring, sub mucosal fibroids. However the biopsy was done to rule out atypical hyperplasia, or uterine cancer. The odds are in you favor. ...Read more

It depends: It depends on how thick the endometrium is and whether it otherwise looks normal....it may be thickened as part of your normal cycle. The ovarian cystic structures may be follicles or functional cysts, again nothing to worry about if they are not too large. Speak with your doctor about the details of the results. ...Read more

Unclear findings: The endometrial thickness is typically not important in women before menopause as it will vary depending on the menstrual cycle. A cystic appearance could indicate endometrial polyps. Since you have already had a D and C you could ask your doctor the pathology findings.

Not enough info: There is not enough info here to evaluate the sonogram findings. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. The endometrial thickness evaluation depends on where you are in the menstrual cycles. "Empty ovaries" is not a term that is normally used so I would ask your Obgyn to explain what is meant by that phrase. ...Read more
