Can I just leave 1cm endometrial polyp? What are the chances of it being cancer? Should I be worried?

Can I just leave 1cm endometrial polyp? What are the chances of it being cancer? Should I be worried?

Not worry, remove: A polyp at your age is not likely to be cancer. But you should get it removed as it may cause bleeding, get infected and it you wish to have children, get in the way of getting pregnant.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

I have a 1cm endometrial polyp that isn't really causing symptoms. I am 35 and pre-menopausal. Doc wants to remove polyp - is that really necessary?

Polyp: Treatment may not be necessary if the polyps do not cause any symptoms. However, polyps should be treated if they cause heavy bleeding during menstrual periods, or if they are suspected to be precancerous or cancerous. They should be removed if they cause problems during pregnancy, such as a miscarriage, or result in infertility in women who want to become pregnant. If a polyp is discovered after menopause, it should be removed.

Still spotting 4 weeks after endometrial polyp was removed.

Incomplete: If spotting continues four weeks after removal of a polyp, there is a likelihood that the polyp removal was not entirely successful. There should have been a follow up visit with the doctor, who performed the polyp removal, at which time the results of the tissue analysis should have been discussed, as well as a return visit should have been scheduled in case there is continuous bleeding/spotting

It is also important to follow up with your doctor regarding the need for any further workup, if necessary.

Does endometrial polyp cause disordered proliferative endometrium? Can I get pregnant with disordered proliferative endometrium? Thanks

Does endometrial polyp cause disordered proliferative endometrium? Can I get pregnant with disordered proliferative endometrium? Thanks

Non uniform growth: A disordered proliferative phase endometrium indicates that the lining of the uterus (endometrium) is not growing in response to estrogen in a uniform way. It can cause an endometrial polyp from estrogen "overgrowth" and it is difficult to conceive until the problems are rectified.

See a gynecologist: I would recommend having it removed especially if you are trying to conceive. It can be removed with a procedure called a hysteroscopy....a scope is placed through the vagina into the uterus and the polyp can be removed. The polyp may be effecting your ability to conceive

What is endometrial polyp?

What is endometrial polyp?

Growth in Uterus: Endometrial polyps are most often benign, growths inside a woman's uterus. They often don't cause any problems. If one was found because you were getting an ultrasound due to problems with vaginal bleeding then you might benefit from treatment. On the other hand, if one was found incidentally, and you are not having problems with your menstrual periods, they often don't need treatment.
