Whether DandC required for endometrium thickness


Q: Following is the trans vaginal scan(Ultra sound scan) report
The uterus is anteverted and measures 7.4 X 5.2cm
It is bulky
Myometrial echoes are homogeneous.
The endometrium is mildly thickened (7mm).few cystic spaces are seen in it
Right ovary measures 2.2 x 2.3 cm
Left ovary measures 1.8 x 1.9 cm
no significant mass or cyst is seen in the ovaries
parametria is free.

The doctor feels we need to do a DandC before friday 13Jan2012 to check endometrium cells from oncology perspective and find the reason for thickness whether this is an abnormality

kindly advice whether Dand C is required for 7mm thickness (or) should i take one more oncology doctor advice? your advice will really help me to come out of my mental pressure.
