Uterine Polyps

  • Uterine polyps are growths attached to the inner wall of the uterus that extend into the uterine cavity. Overgrowth of cells in the lining of the uterus (endometrium) leads to the formation of uterine polyps, also known as endometrial polyps. See the image above. These polyps are usually noncancerous (benign), although some can be cancerous or can eventually turn into cancer (precancerous polyps)
  • Uterine polyps range in size from a few millimeters — no larger than a sesame seed — to several centimeters — golf-ball-size or larger. They attach to the uterine wall by a large base or a thin stalk.
  • One can have one or many uterine polyps. They are usually contained within the uterus, but occasionally, they slip down through the opening of the uterus (cervix) into the vagina. Uterine polyps most commonly occur in women who are going through or have completed menopause, although younger women can get them too.
