I am 59 years old. I just had a ultrasound it showed thickened uterus 11mm and fibrous (sp). I have no bleeding no pain. Is this cancer?
Your Gynecologist ca: You should seek further help from your gynecologist. The question I have is why you had the ultrasound done in the first place? Thickening of the uterine lining can be benign but it needs to be moitored for further change in next 3 to 6 months. This can be done with a repeat ultrasound. If the thickness increases further, then an endometrial biopsy may provide the answers to the cause. ...Read more

May depend on how: Full your bladder was. A full bladder will lift the uterus up. An empty bladder provides room in the anterior pelvis for the uterus to drop into.

Yep!: Uteri come in all sizes, shapes, and configurations. They can be tipped forward, backward or sideways and/or can be bent forward, backward, or sideways. These variations in normal usually do not affect fertility. To take this a step further, there could be a uterus with two heads or two cervixes. Not to worry - follow the usual rules about infertility (no baby after 1 year of unprotected sex). ...Read more

Ectopic preg./PID.: There are many possibilities, but two of the most important are ectopic pregnancy, and pid or pelvic inflammatory disease. Ectopic pregnancy must be ruled out in cases of uterine/pelvic pain, and is due to a fertilized ovum developing in a fallopian tube. This is an emergency. Pid is also possible, but is more chronic, and can result in infertility. Please see your doctor soon to find out. ...Read more
