Endometrial thickening can be diffuse or focal.
Benign diffuse thickening is commonly seen in menopausal women. During menopause, estrogen and progesterone levels are low , these female reproductive hormones regulate the endometrium built.
Focal lesions can be due many causes including polyps, and submucosal fibroid.
TVS is the clinically preferred technique for evaluation of endometrial disorders and endometrial changes suggestive of carcinoma. However, sonohysterography better defines the focal thickening from diffuse endometrial thickening of endometrial hyperplasia.
Your doctor is correct to check inside your uterus using a small telescope (hysteroscope) and to do endometrial biopsy as needed.
Endometrial thickening can be benign and caused by low levels of estrogen and a lack of progesterone as you transition into menopause. Estrogen builds up the lining and no more progesterone prevents it from leveling off and shedding. Even if there is abnormal endometrial thickening, it takes about 10 years for it to turn into cancer, so it�s good you got a biopsy but it is more likely going to either be benign or premalignant.
To me i would get a second opinion it doesnt look like its okay to watch. Have you gotten a biopsy done? If not i would ask for one.
