I'm 58, my periods stopped in March 2020 and I've had a period last month, I went to see my doctor then a gynaecologist and after an internal examination she said I have to have an ultrasound done and I think also a camera will be inserted to have a look. My gynaecologist also said that I would have to have a D&C done which may be done under a general anaesthetic or an epidural. As I'm asthmatic and have type 2 diabetes and I'm very overweight I'm concerned about this. My question is about the D&C, is this the only way to take a sample to check for cancer. Sorry for the long query, thanks.

Hello have you seen my query

Yes, we need to get the biopsy done and to take the biopsy, I believe this is the best way.

What kind of cancer they are quering?

She didn't say but she said that any bleed after my periods stopped had to be investigated and I'm wondering if there was any other way apart from a D&C, because of my other health issues.

Is the D&C the only option

This is the most easy option in this regard.
