PCOS, Endometriosis, Heavy Cycles, 33yo, tubal ligation 3 yrs ago. Would an endometrial ablation lessen my symptoms/cancer risks?

In brief: Maybe not

Endometrial cancer can be obscured by endometrial ablations if it is not ruled out prior to the procedure by biopsy.
Many women continue to have bleeding post endometrial ablation procedures, and the most likely conclusive treatment is hysterectomy if you no longer desire children.
