seeing an oncologist for two failed hysteroscopes

My gynecologist tried twice to do a D&C hysteroscopy and couldn't complete it because of cervical stenosis. I'm 47 and two years post menopausal. The finding on a TVU was 11.7 thickened uterine stripe, two normal ovarian cysts and two Nabothian Cysts on the cervix. After the second attempt during surgery, she said I would need to see an oncologist. She told me that they would either suggest a hysterectomy or to start a preventive cancer treatment. I'm confused though because I have not yet had a biopsy or dx of cancer, yet. So why would she suggest those may be my options? My appointment with the Oncologist is on the 18th of Aug.  I have a very long medical history with Pre Cervical cancer in my teens, treated by Cryo, I have thyroid disease, Heart Disease, Kidney Disease. I know  I shouldnt let this make my mind wonder, but I'm getting a little scared. They have not performed a CA125 on me, do you think they will at my appointment? What tests should I ask them to perform or expect them to be performing to determine what steps are next?

Hello and welcome to the forum! Sorry for a delay in getting back to you. Would you mind updating from your August 18th appointment? They likely did perform a CA125 at your August 18th appointment? I think the important thing that your doctor suggested to you was preventative treatment. Not actual cancer treatment, right? Please update from your oncologist appointment and we'll go from there.
