thickening of the womb - worried :-(

Hi all,
My friend who is 60 has experienced vaginal bleeding. She went to the doctor and the doctor who did a scan of the womb first of all said there is a thickening of the linking of the womb but that he doesn't think it's cancer (he showed her all the scan pictures too), but he has referred her for a D and C (she has to have a general). She is very over weight.
Bit worried that he didn't think it was cancer yet has referred her for more tests. If he thought it wasn't then why would he refer her for more tests?
Any ideas? If the doctor doesn't think it's cancer, are they normally right, do they normally have a good idea by looking at scans?
Thank you in advance.

These symptoms point to problems with the uterus, rather than with the ovaries.  Most of us here don't have much information about this; you might get better information posting this on the uterine forum.
Best of luck to your friend.
