Do ovarian cysts cause thickening of the endometrial wall?

Do ovarian cysts cause thickening of the endometrial wall?

Endometrium: Thickening of the endometrium during a normal menstrual cycle is due to estrogen prodcution by a follicle (which can appear as a cyst on ultrasound).

Sometimes the two are confused without providing the history of an iud. 2 cm endometrial thickness is only significant in cases of abnormal bleeding. The findings needed to be correlated with your symptoms and discussed with the doctor who ordered the exam. ...Read more

Phase of cycle: The thickness of the endometrium may reflect the phase of your cycle. You didn't say how thick.
