I am 63 years old. It has been seven years since my menopause. My endometrial thickness is 10 mm now and the uterus is normal. Two years before, the thickness was 8.6 mm. I have no symptom such as bleeding. Please suggest any guideline for further tests.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have read and understood your problem.
One research concludes that in a postmenopausal woman without vaginal bleeding, if the endometrium measures more than 11 mm, then a biopsy should be considered as the risk of cancer is 6.7%.
Whereas if the endometrium measures less or equal to 11 mm a biopsy is not needed as the risk of cancer is extremely low.
Thickness may vary from time to time. However, if you have a family history of cancer you can go for biopsy.
