- I believe the normal lining for a woman you describe should be 5mm or less. So yes, your doctor would want a endometrial biopsy.#1; Wed, 19 Dec 2007 07:49:00 GMT

- I had a 7mm endometrial lining, gyn did biopsy, result was complex hyperplasia. Started to treat it with progesterone, then I was diagnosed with breast cancer, had to stop progesterone. Had cancer surgery October 30, then hysterectomy +ovaries November 15. Went back to work part time last week, November 30, hysterectomy left me tired but no pain, able to drive and walk. Start breast radiation in a couple of weeks. Gyn told me anything over 5mm in a postmenopausal woman needs further investigation.#4; Wed, 19 Dec 2007 07:52:00 GMT
- Hi Vallegrrl -
I hope you dont mind me asking directly - I'm just really worried about my mother.
Did you have any symptons? My mother stopped having periods about 7 years ago.
Hope you reply - thanks.#5; Wed, 19 Dec 2007 07:53:00 GMT
- I had some bleeding from a cervical polyp that my family dr found during routine physical, sent me to gyn who removed it. Bleeding stopped as soon as the polyp was removed, never returned. The gyn also did a biopsy because she said it was standard whenever there is postmenopausal bleeding. Next visit did an unltrasound and found thickened lining, began to treat. Then routine mammogram found breast cancer, had to quit treating lining with progesterone and have hysterectomy. The bleeding never did return after the polyp was removed, so I don't think I would have known there was a uterine problem if not for the polyp. The endometrial biopsy was not painful. I returned to my part time job two weeks after the hysterectomy, am a little tired but otherwise doing fine.#6; Wed, 19 Dec 2007 07:55:00 GMT
- Thank you for replying so quickly.
I'm really worried about my mother. There is just so much info on the net I just dont know what to think. She has fibroids but the Gyn was more concerned with the lining of the womb but she has no bleeding or obvious pain.
She is not having her biopsy until Jan - a bit of a wait. I read that you can get symptons such as constipation, tiredness, pains and aches and they can be advance cancer.
Just worried - I love my mother.#7; Wed, 19 Dec 2007 07:55:00 GMT
