To clarify, is it really necessary to have a small uterine polyp removed in a 28 yr old with mid cycle bleeding? I don't have bleeding every cycle.
Uterine polyps: Uterine polyps are benign growths in the lining of the uterus. They may cause bleeding when twisted to cut off blood supply and result in degeneration.

Hope it is all well for you. ...Read more

What would be the rationale for getting a hysterectomy for uterine polyps? (I had polyps removed 4 years ago in 2011 and have a new 1 now.)

A hysteroscopy may be necessary to completely remove a polyp. Whatever tissue is retrieved, is is almost always sent to the pathologist for microscopic evaluation. ...Read more

What percentage of time/how common is it to get a 2nd uterine polyp or for 1 2 grow back after removal of a polyp? Ave length of time this happens?
Hard?: Uterine polyps are not that common to begin with. I am not sure what procedure was performed to remove them. If that was a d&c, then the polyp or polyps got removed entirely and it should not regrow quickly unless it is cancerous. If it regrew and the biopsy was not cancer, then it could have been that it was not removed in the first place. Anyway, we need more details on that. ...Read more

Just was told I have a uterine polyp about 7.2cm. What is the treatment, is it considered small or large and should I be concerned?
Symptomatic?: 7.2 cm is a fairly large polyp, the non pregnant uterus is about 7.6 cm. I assume that you had symptoms that led to finding the polyp. If you can live with the symptoms then you can live with the polyp. If the symptoms are not bearable or get worse then you should have it surgically removed. ...Read more
