In brief: No, except...
...That anything is possible.
However, for a long time the position of gynecologists has been that under the age of 30, the probability of endometrial cancer being the source of abnormal vaginal bleeding was so small as to not justify endometrial biopsy. However, any abnormal vaginal bleeding requires careful analysis and a satisfactory diagnosis.

In brief: Endometrial cancer
Endometrial cancer in the young can occur, but it is not common.
When it occurs, uaually there is either a genetic/hereditary change that caused it or the patient is morbidly obese.
