Hi. I just want to clarify: is the pelvic lining you're referring to the lining of the uterine wall? If it is, various conditions can cause it to thicken. First, the uterine lining may thicken as a normal part of the menstrual cycle. The lining builds up as the woman approaches ovulation and gets sloughed off as part of the menstrual blood at the end of the cycle. The lining may also thicken when there is infection or inflammation in the area. Finally, a thick uterine wall may signify infiltration of the wall by cancer cells. If you have abnormal thickness of your uterine wall, you may wish to discuss the matter with your gynecologist, who is in the best position to tell you what's causing it.
