Uncommon: Your gynecologist can better guide you. It is probably benign. But a biopsy may be required before making a definite diagnosis.

Low - Less than 10%: The prevalence rate of endometrial polyps ranges from 10% to 40% in women with abnormal uterine bleeding, and polyps are found in up to 12% of asymptomatic women in routine examinations. Generally, the prevalence rate of malignancy associated with endometrial polyps ranges from 0.8% to 8%. Women with endometrial polyps and postmenopausal bleeding had a higher prevalence of endometrial malignancy.
