Can endometrial cancer look like a normal endometrium in secretory phase? Or are there usually other sonographic features? What stage would this be?

Yes

Cancer
Ultrasound is not a good predictor for endometrial cancer. That requires a biopsy. Ultrasound may indicate which women need a biopsy depending on their age and clinical circumstances. At age 24, women are at rare risk of endometrial cancer.

Not much but enough

Very little tissue is removed during an endometrial biopsy but multiple studies show that the amount is adequate to make an accurate diagnosis. The main purpose is to rule out cancer or premalignant lesions called endometrial hyperplasia.

It is not unusual to find endometrial cells on a pap smear in the first 14 days of the menstrual cycle. When these cells are found in women over 40, they may prompt additional testing, including an endometrial biopsy to make sure there is no endometrial pathology
