In brief: Thick endometrium

She needs to be check by a gyn.
Is she post menopausal?, if so that is concerning and she may need a hysterscopy where they look under anesthesia an take sampling, as an endometrial biopsy at this age may not be adequate. Even if still premenopausal that is a thick endometrium and irregualr , Need gyn follow up soon.
