Endometrial thickness 26mm

27 Aug 2020 23:25
Hello, I am new here and would just like a bit of advice. I have been told I have endometrial thickness 26 mm and am required to have a hysteroscopy for a biopsy. I have researched 26 mm thickness however have not found anyone as of yet to have such a high measurement, has anyone on here had the same as me or is this most likely to be abnormal. Thank you in advance.

Hi Lucie

mine is 16mm. My doc said the norm is 5mm. I had a hysteroscopy this week and a biopsy taken. The gynaecologist has given me two options an ablation or an hysterectomy. He said my lining was caused by taking the POP

Hello Janew1,

 

Thank you for replying I am sorry to hear your news, its difficult to know what option you should choose. Sorry for sounding silly but what is POP?.

Hi, I have recently been referred to my local hospital, my measurement was 43mm! I had a hysteroscopy & they found polyps which they have sent off for biopsy. I now have to have a MRI next week. I won't get the results for 2 weeks & I am also looking for answers

Hi

I have had an ultrasound today and also have a 26mm lining, a 3cm polyp and when I asked questuions she said something about the outdies of my womb, making a circle shape with her hands. I have a hysteroscopy booked for Sunday and as you can imagine am beside myself with worry.  Any support would be welcome.

Hi lucie 

mine is also 24mm I've just had ovarys, tubes and a 5 cm dermoid cyst removed the hysterscopy was done at the same time and I am now awaiting my results .I think it depends on your age and whether you are post menopausal on how quick they act . Hoping you get positive news and it's nothing serious 

take care

Hi Emma

so it turned out that my lining looked that thick in a scan because I had a very large polyp, as the scan can't pick up exactly what the thickness is. The polyp was removed during the hysteroscopy and the biopsy came back clear. I also had really bad cramping and bleeding, they told me that the cramping is due to my womb trying to get rid of the polyp, and the bleeding was because the polyp moves around and as the blood vessels are near the surface in the womb, the movement of the polyp caused the bleeding. 
I was also petrified and had convinced myself I had cancer. Such a shame you can't get seen quicker to put your mind at rest. Happy to answer any other questions if I can be of help.

apologies for not responding to others as I only got an email today to tell me ther had been responses to my post.

best wishes
