Are fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia, or polyps a precursor to cancer?

Are fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia, or polyps a precursor to cancer?

Possibly: Fibroids are benign growths of uterine muscle and are not cancerous. Rarely, a fast growing fibroid may in fact be a sarcoma or a cancer. A uterine polyp (like a skin tag in the uterus) can be totally benign or may house hyperlastic cells. Endometrial hyperplasia with atypical cells is considered precancerous and should be treated. Bleeding after menopause should always be evaluated. ...Read more

Hysteroscopy 9/13 biopsy all nrml taking progesterone now have 2cm uterine polyp unlikely cancer or no?

Hysteroscopy 9/13 biopsy all nrml taking progesterone now have 2cm uterine polyp unlikely cancer or no?

Unlikely: all endometrial polyps should be sent to a pathologist for after ascertainment of whether or not there is a cancer in the polyp. This is highly unlikely if you are on progesterone, however the risk of cancer does increase with age. My suggestion would be to have the polyps removed. The procedure is low risk, would be happy to discuss further. ...Read more

Pap smears: Pap smears allow pathologists to evaluate cells from the cervix (the outside or ectocervix and inside or endocervix). Most of the time we do not find cells from the endometrial cavity in the test slide because the pap smear collection brush should not go into the endometrium. Additional biopsies are required to evaluate endometrial pathology. ...Read more

Hysteroscopy d&c 4 polyp 10/15  path normal on prometrium daily last few periods 20 days u/s adenomyosis lining 4 mm am protected from endo cancer ?

Likely: Endometrial polyps are usually benign, as was yours. Prometrium helps prevent hyperplasia, a precursor to endometrial cancer. Ultrasounds are not usually diagnostic for adenomyosis, only suggest. A Levonorgestrel IUD may be more effective for treating symptoms of adenomyosis while preventing endometrial cancer. ...Read more

Hyperplasia has a significant risk of becoming cancer depending on whether there is atypia or not. In general fibroids are not cancerous. But some woman can develop certain types of uterine cancer that look like fibroids. ...Read more
