Can a doc just look at tissue from d & c and say that it's probably not endometrial cancer?

No: He / she is free to look but visuals on D&C products are famously unreliable. The pathologist needs to look, and if you have any doubts, you can it read by several of us. ...Read more

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

Yes: 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. ...Read more

See below: The biopsy did not recover enough tissue for processing for microscopic examination. Your endometrium may be so atrophic that it did not yield tissue on biopsy or it may have been a technical problem. Please discuss the matter with your doctor to see if an other attempt at biopsy is warranted. ...Read more

Not sure: 5 follicles of 18 mm is alot and you should probably avoid intercourse in order to prevent multiples. But the tissue could be endometrium - however it doesn't really affect your chance of pregnancy. ...Read more
