Benign Fibroepithelial Polyp
No it is not: This is a benign growth that can be found on the vulva or in the vagina. It can be hormone sensitive, if someone were taking hormones. It is not caused by HPV but to be certain, one should have a biopsy done. I assume by this question that this has been done. Here is a reference: http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih.

Yes, both.: Gallbladder "polyps" may be true polypoid lesions or cholesterolosis, related to fats in the gallbladder wall. Both lesions can "grow". If significant polypoid disease is found on ultrasound, most surgeons recommend cholecystectomy, as there is a small, but real, chance of true polyps becoming adenocarcinoma over time.See 1 more doctor answer
Colonoscopy found 2 polyps. One removed completely. Other one portion removed. Both came back benign. Can the other portion not removed be miligant?
Technically yes: Technically it could, but one can estimate those chances by looking in more detail of your pathology report. If they both came back benign, that risk is extremely low. Ask your gastroenterologist for more details.See 1 more doctor answer

Adenomatous polyp: You most likely had an adenomatous polyp. These polyps are the most common type of polyp we find in the colon, occurring in roughly 20-30% of patients. Over a long time (10 years), these polyps can possibly turn into cancer, so we call them "pre-cancerous". However we also often call them "benign" as they are 1) very common 2) we remove them, and 3) technically they are not cancer yet.See 2 more doctor answers
Sort of the same: An adenomatous polyp is not cancer so by definition is "benign" although it harbors the potential of becoming malignant with time. Not all benign polyps are adenomatous. Some are just plain polyps with little or no malignant potential. So, adenomatous polyps are benign but not all benign polyps are adenomatous.See 1 more doctor answer

Polyp: The answer really depends on what kind of benign polyp it is. Generally you should listen to your physician about this. If you want a second opinion and can get a hold of the pathology reports from both times it's been removed, I would be happy to review those for you. Just contact me here on Healthtap concierge.
