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

I had a vaginal scan indicating that my uterus is axial, the endometrium was 7.7mm now I have to have a hysteroscopy/biopsy is this necessary?

I had a hysteroscopy 4 weeks ago and nothing found but took biopsy had sex last night and bleed a little could this be cause of hysteroscopy ?

I had a hysteroscopy 4 weeks ago and nothing found but took biopsy had sex last night and bleed a little could this be cause of hysteroscopy ?

Maybe: Was this the first time since the hysteroscopy? Trauma to your cervix at that time could have not completely healed but that would be unusual after 4 weeks and the spotting would usually have occurred the first time you had sex or used a tampon. Where are you in your cycle? This could be a period starting or ovulation. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Usually longer: Tumors usually takes years to develop. From your profile it appears that you may benefit from losing weight.
