Need more info: Are you saying that an endometrial biopsy is being done because of a question of premalignant cells on a Pap smear? If so, an endometrial biopsy should help to clarify that. With a normal ultrasound, it is unlikely that you have "full blown" cancer but the biopsy is important. ...Read more

Endometrial polyp: If the biopsy was negative, chances are minimal that you have cancer. Most likely, you have a polyp causing the thickened endometrium.
