Cancer: Uterine Message Board

Cancer: Uterine Board Index

Hi! I really need some answers and hope someone can help me.

I'm 5 years post menopause (last period was 12/2014) and about 3 weeks ago had started bleeding. I went to ER cuz I freaked out and the ultrasound indicated endometrial hyperplasia along with a few other odd findings that I'm not too concerned with right this second. (both ovaries were a little larger than normal, there were follicles seen in both ovaries with no size mentioned, nabothian cysts, calcification seen in lower uterine segment.)
The uterine lining was thickened at 0.7 cm or 7 mm, no intrauterine masses noted, with anteverted uterus measuring 8.8 X 4.3 X 4.2.
I saw a gynecologist 2 days later and he wants to do a endometrial biopsy. He did say anytime there is postmenopausal bleeding it's something they want to look into further to rule out cancer.
My problem is they haven't even scheduled it yet.
Should it take this long for his wife to get the referral submitted to the insurance???

It's supposed to be done at the hospital on outpatient basis and I'm freaking out. I live in a rural community where the medical professionals leave a lot to be desired and I learned a long time ago I needed to advocate for myself.

My other question is has anyone had endometrial hyperplasia with bleeding, no history of HRT and been ok? I mean not cancer? There is cancer on both sides of my family breast, colon, lung and lymphoma.

I'm sorry this is so long. I've been scouring the internet for weeks and I'm making myself literally ill.

Thank you!;)
