Post-menopausal bleeding

Any vaginal bleeding after the menopause requires urgent investigation. Approximately 10% of women with post menopausal bleeding will have some form of genital tract cancer. An ultrasound of the womb can determine the thickness of its lining. If the lining of the womb is thicker than expected, a hysteroscopy and a sample of endometrium should be taken for analysis.
