bleeding after 10 years of menopause
hi,my mom, who is 55, experienced menopause a decade ago. However, she has recently noticed some unexpected bleeding. I thought menopause meant no more periods. Why is she bleeding after 10 years of menopause? Should we be concerned, and what should we do about it?

An abnormal vaginal bleed after menopause could indicate the presence of uterine cancer or endometrial hyperplasia and hormonal imbalance. I recommend that your mother consult a gynecologist immediately. A gynecological oncologist is a specialist who can diagnose her in more detail and prescribe treatment if necessary.
