Endometrial Polyp in NYC
Endometrial polyps, also known as uterine polyps, are abnormal growths in your endometrium, the lining of your uterus. The excessive growth leads to the formation of polyps. Uterine polyps are more commonly found in women who've undergone menopause, although younger women can get them too. You can have just one polyp or many.
Polyps will almost always cause problems with pain or bleeding at some time
Endometrial polyps are attached to the inner wall of your uterus by a thin base or a stalk that connects them to the endometrial lining. Polyps can range in size and shape, from the size of a seed all the way up to the size of a ping-pong ball.
Endometrial polyps irritate the surrounding tissues in your uterus and can cause pain or abnormal bleeding. Most endometrial polyps are benign or noncancerous. A small number can be cancerous or precancerous, however, which is why it's vital that you have them removed and sent to a lab to be analyzed. Endometrial polyps should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by a physician gynecologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan as it may be a symptom or sign of a serious illness or condition.
