Hi,
How are you? What are the symptoms present? The endometrial stripe is composed of the lining of the uterus and may change size depending on a variety of factors. This  thickens as the uterus prepares itself for the arrival of a fertilized egg or during hormone therapy.  Abnormalities in the endometrial stripe may suggest malignancy also and warrants further evaluation by a gynecologist. It is best that you discuss the results with your doctor and have pelvic examination done for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
