My endometrial lining is 20mm thick. I am post menopausal and have been feeling a dull ache or pressure in my lower abdomen. Should i be worried?

In brief: Yes

If you know that your linig is 20 mm then you are already in good hands: talk to your doctor about next steps.
Simple expectant management is not an option.

In brief: Abnormal endometrium

A normal postmenopausal endometrial thickness is less than 5 mm. It is important to see you gynecologist for further evaluation which may be an endometrial biopsy.
The possibly causes of this thickness can be an endometrial polyp, intracavitary fibroid, endometrial hyperplasia and/or endometrial adenocarcinoma.
