Welcome to ehealthforum.
The ultrasound scan report as described by you suggests possibility of endometrial polyp or a Submucosal fibroid. The endometrial thickness and sign could also suggest endometrial hyperplasia. You can consider taking second opinion from another gynecologist for your symptoms and investigation results. Proceed with further management as instructed after your second opinion based on examination findings and investigation results correlated with your symptoms. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
