A direct access ultrasound scan to assess for endometrial cancer should be considered for women aged 55 and over with unexplained vaginal discharge who, also report haematuria, or have thrombocytosis, or are presenting with vaginal discharge for the first time. Direct access ultrasound scanning should also be considered for those women with visible haematuria and also high blood glucose levels, or low haemoglobin levels, or thrombocytosis.

NICE recommends referring women aged 55 and over with post menopausal bleeding for assessment for endometrial cancer using a suspected cancer pathway referral for an appointment within 2 weeks.
