That is an abnormal uterine lining. It increase your risk of cancer and hyperplasia of the endometrium
You need an endometrial biopsy
Its an office procedure that samples the uterine lining
Ultrasound is not diagnostic, the biopsy is required
Was the biopsy read as scanty with insufficient tissue? If so, its not an adequate biopsy. Your pain is not due to the endometrial thickening. That is asymptomatic. It wont get better with that procedure. No, you should first have an adequate biopsy or d and C and go from there. Yes the procedure reduces cancer risk but it will not change the pain you are having. You need to get to the root of that first.
ok so that is a normal biopsy and its not a source of your pain That does help alot
I dont think a d and c is necessary at all in the absence of bleeding. Actually less than 8 mm is normal Less than 4 mm is almost zero risk of cancer. Thats why the biopsy was done. Hysterectomy is alot for really no diagnosis
Maybe consider an endometrial ablation like Novasure if you are really worried
