Vaginal Polyp Symptoms
Having my 3rd leep in 10 years for recurring hsil cervical polyps (1st leep was for mild). Should I be concerned? Should I look into a hysterectomy?
Surgical Risk?: In general, hysterectomy is much more invasive and puts a patient at significantly greater risk than a leep. Further, hysterectomy should only be used when a leep is insufficient, i.e. Positive margins. I do understand the frustration/anxiety entailed by recurrent hsil though -- hysterectomy may be reasonable if your gyn can perform a lower risk procedure, like a laparoscopic or vaginal surgery. ...Read more
Polyp removal last fall and now vaginal bleeding between periods to equal, 75% of month no other symptoms. Likely polyp has returned?
I saw brown stain on my panty yest. Not sure what it is fecal or vaginal. Am menopausal and had polyp removed over 2 months ago.?
See a gynecologist.: Place a tampon in your vagina and see if the brown staining still persists. If it does, it is most likely fecal. Check the tampon later and if it is Brown, then you know that it is vaginal. If you are having postmenopausal bleeding then you should definitely see a gynecologist because this could be another polyp, a fibroid, or even cancer. ...Read more
I had a colonoscopy and polyp removed 3days ago. I have had thick brown vaginal discharge since. Is this normal.
No: Colonoscopy has nothing to do with vaginal situations. If no tumor was detected perforating anterior wall of rectum into vagina, which I suspect is not the case, then vaginal discharge is uterine in origin. Blood that remains in utero and passes to the vagina will decompose and appear as a brown discharge. One must examine the uterus by ultrasound to see what the endometrial lining is like. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have had in the past year several cysts, a uterine and vaginal polyp with a cyst underneath the polyp. When would you recommend hysterectomy?
OB GYN Consult: You need to talk to a OB GYN MD who is aware of ALL of your GYN issues to give you the best answer. Future childbearing abilities are also a source of consideration.

Is it possible that a vaginal ultrasound will misdiagnose a endometrial polyp? Is it possible this is scar tissue from a fiberoil I had removed?
Polyp: Appearance of lesions on imaging is often suitable as a screening test, but as noted by the other physician's answer it could very well be something else. A biopsy will tell with certainty, as a polyp, leiomyoma, scar and hyperplasia, etc, all have very characteristic features on pathology. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hysterectomy 24 yrs ago. Uterus & cervix removed. Vaginal bleeding. Family Dr. Says it's a polyp. Have a referral to see Gyn. What happens now? I'm 66
Polyp: If there is a polyp there, it is likely that the doctor will remove or at least biopsy it. After a hysterectomy or menopause the most common reason for bleeding is the thinning of the vaginal tissue due to low estrogen levels. This is called atrophic vaginitis. Occasionally, after a hysterectomy there will be granulation tissue or "proud flesh" at the cuff which can resemble a polyp and bleed. ...Read more
