In brief: Hard to be certain

Ultrasound is never 100%, but several findings are suspicious for endometrial hyperplasia or even cancer.
For instance, if your lining is excessively thick for your age or if there is a suspicious mass seen within the uterine cavity on the sonogram, hyperplasia or cancer may be present. However, other findings can cause similar images on sonogram. Also, diagnosis can only be made with a biopsy.

In brief: No

Endometrial hyperplasia is a pathologic diagnosis of changes in the tissue lining the uterus.
An endometrial biopsy must be performed to determine the classification of hyperplasia. Typically, endometrial hypeplasia can be treated with progesterone.
