Just diagnosed with a thick endometrium . . . adult content

Last Saturday I started noticing very light vaginal bleeding. When it didn't go away by Monday, I saw my doc and she ordered a pelvic/vaginal ultrasound. I got the results today and was told that I had a thick endometrial lining, that my right ovary wasn't visible on the ultrasound (and I have not had it removed) and that I needed to see a GYN for an endometrial biopsy. I had one of those when I was trying to get pregnant and it was fun. (note sarcasm here) I have the appointment with the GYN for Tuesday.

I've done a little Internet research and some of the sites I've found mention the possibility of endometrial cancer, which of course scares me to death!

I'm 47 and went through menopause about 2-3 years ago, so I shouldn't be bleeding at all. I also take Prem-Pro for hormone replacement.

Anyone have any experience with this type of condition?
