I feel there is enough concern to have a gynecologist evaluate and follow-up these uterine entities. Uterine polyps are usually benign, but transformation to malignancy can occur and for this reason a gynecologist's evaluation and follow-up is important.

both polyps and fibroids can be incidental findings that may not need treatment unless you are postmenopausal or symptomatic. signs that you might need treatment include excessive bleeding or pelvic pain

Fibroids are not a concern unless a fertility issue. 8 mm is small. Polyps can cause issues with fertility/bleeding and are removed if precancerous. If post menopausal polyps should be removed. 7 cm(not mm) is large. Larger polyp size does increase the risk of cancer. Discuss with your doctor management of the large polyp and whether hysteroscopy should be performed ( small polyps are < 1 cm
