Polyps are structures on the inner wall of the uterus, which extend into the uterine cavity. Excessive growth of the cells of the inner lining of the uterus (endometrium) leads to the formation of endometrial polyps, and such polyps are mostly benign. Some, on the other hand, can grow into cancerous formations.
The size of polyps varies from a few millimeters to a few centimeters. The number of polyps can range from one to several. These polyps most often occur in women who are going through or have gone through menopause, but they can also occur in younger women.
Symptoms include irregular menstrual bleeding, unpredictable periods of varying length and amount of bleeding, bleeding between cycles, extremely heavy menstrual bleeding, vaginal bleeding after menopause, infertility.
Polyp operations are performed using a hysteroscopic method if the polyp is in the uterine cavity or by a standard surgery procedure if the polyp is on the cervix .
It is usually performed under local anesthesia, but it can also be performed under general anesthesia. The patient is discharged immediately after the intervention.
