Odds : The odds of having a cancerous growth within a polyp is fairly small. Risk factors such as not having any kids, history of irregular periods, advanced age, obesity can increase your chances of having uterine malignancy. However, as a whole the odds are still small. if a negative biopsy has been done in the past, you can be reasonably assured for now. They may sample your lining again in the future
