You have had a really good evaluation. A D&C is the gold standard test for diagnosing endometrial cancer. It sounds like you had benign polyps. So we know that there was no sign of cancer one year ago.
Bleeding can be from many causes such as fibroids, polyps, , infection, pregnancy, adenomyosis (a benign condition of normal endometrial glands growing into the muscle wall of the uterus.) And of course endometrial cancer presents with abnormal bleeding.
A repeat D&C is absolutely the right thing to do.
I have same bleeding as llcoolbeans - my doc found a polyp today on my cervix and sent a biopsy to the lab to rule out uterine cancer. If the polyp is negative, I also have a 2 cm fibroid on top of my uterus. Which one of these growths is responsible for my heavy bleeding and will a D&C get me back on track?

a D&C may help. There may be more to the polyp deeper inside. Sometimes bleeding can be due to a benign fibroid that is distorting the cavity of the uterus. In that case, a D&C may not help
