Re: Just diagnosed and awaiting surgery

So sorry to hear your situation. Try and stay positive because you haven’t had your ultrasound yet. See what that shows. If the endometrium lining is thickened they will do a biopsy. It’s my understanding that post menopausal bleeding can have many causes and I think I was told only 10% of bleeding and thickened endometrium results in a cancer diagnosis. Try and take it one step at a time. It’s good you have reached out for help from cancer council. Take care.
