What Causes Polyps On Cervix
Sharp achy pain that sometimes goes to cervix I think during my heaviest days of my cycle (day 1 & 2). possible uterine polyp. Could that be the cause?
Why would polyps on cervix cause spotting during pregnancy if untouched by intercourse or anything else?
Very friable: Emdocervical polyps bleed easily in pregnancy simply from the engorgement (swelling) that occurs with pregnancy. The polyp wall is thin, erodes easily, and can bleed spontaneously especially if extruding from the cervix. Better to deal with it after delivery unless it causes problems. ...Read more
I have just had a polyp removed from outside of my cervix and my uterus is closed so removal of my IUD is difficult. Can the polyp be a cause?
Cervical polyp: The vast majority are benign and can be easily removed by your GYN. They will often bleed and its best to have them removed. Talk with your doctor. ...Read more
Possibilities: The cause of cervical polyps is not entirely understood. They may result from infection. They can also result from long-term (chronic) inflammation, an abnormal response to an increase in estrogen levels, or congestion of blood vessels in the cervical canal. Ref: www. Webmd. Com/women/tc/cervical-polyps-topic-overview ...Read more
Why?: It would not be a hard or risky thing to do. But why is it being done? The main risk is bleeding. During pregnancy, blood flow to the uterus and any polyps will be increased. Often a polyp will fall off after or during the pregnancy. Unless there is a concern with cancer or bleeding from the polyp, we would usually just sit tight. ...Read more
If infected, yes: An infected and necrotic cervical polyp will prevent sperm from reaching the intrauterine cavity by inducing inflammatory cells (white blood cells) that can "ingest" the sperm. Moreover, those same cells will enter the uterus and prevent implantation in severely infected cases. Polyp removal is relatively simple and should be considered if pregnancy has been an issue. ...Read more
Diagnosed with a polyp on cervix which has been bleeding for a month solid. I have to wait 2 months to be removed. Can symptoms escalate?
Is it normal to have a flap of tissue hanging out of your cervix opening? Polyp pics look more like bumps, this is more like a 'tenticle'
Well, no...: To begin, it's not possible to see one's own cervix unless perhaps a photograph has been provided to you from an exam. It's understandable to confuse the cervix with the vaginal opening or labia minora. Regardless, most growths on a cervix should be removed and examined once identified. So the short answer is no, this should be examined by a doctor who can perform colposcopy/biopsy if needed. ...Read more

Unclear: It is not clear what is meant by the terminology of a hole in the ovary or the ovary is hard. I would return to the doctor and ask for clarification on what that means. If you are not satisfied with the answer consider getting a 2nd opinion. Cervical polyps are typical removed in the office ...Read more

Obgyn found polyp on my cervix yesterday come back in 2 weeks for removal. Why did he remove on this visit if it's simple?
Time: The delay may have been due to time constraints. These days, appointments are scheduled allowing only a certain amount of time based on what type of visit, i.e.preventive medicine vs. Problem vs. Procedure, has been scheduled. There is also the issue of reimbursement which is lower if a visit and procedure are done on the same day (the wisdom of insurance companies). Hope this helps. ...Read more
I have a bump on my cervix and some brown discharge. Could it be a cervical polyp? And if so, does it need to be removed?
Probably not: If your Pap tests and cervical screenings are normal, there is little cause for alarm and probably no need to do anything. There is a very high likelihood that that you may have some vey benign conditions like "Nabothian follicles or Nabothian cysts" which will usually resolve spontaneously or a benign cervical polyp which is also likely to disappear on its own. ...Read more

What do you advise if I had a hysteroscopy performed to remove 4 polyps, 2 in the cervix, and 2 in the uterus. Now I am thinking?
Polyps: Unless you are trying to conceive, or are having continuing bleeding, polyps are not dangerous, and do not require additional treatment. Polyps are very rarely malignant, and grow from the mucous layer of the uterus (the lining). Ask your gyn provider about "endometrial ablation" if you are having bleeding problems. ...Read more
Polyps appeared on cervix 7wks after conception. Was it estrogen that made them grow? Were they inside and pregnancy pushed them out? Thoughts? Obgyn?
Yes & yes: You pretty much know the answers. An increase in size of course makes them more noticeable. Bleeding makes them more noticeable, otherwise, why would you look? They do tend to extrude more in pregnancy because of the above & also because the cervix softens, slightly opens, making it easier for polyps to be seen. It was probably always there, now it's bigger, badder & causing trouble, still ok. ...Read more
The last 3 times I had sex this month, I have had bleeding straight after. I have a lump on my cervix. Could it be polyp? Iam trying for a baby and I am worried.
See ob/gyn: You should see your gynecologist and have your doctor check the lump on cervix- to rule out cervical/uterine cancer. Obviously it could be a polyp too, but, you don't want to assume-rather you should have it biopsied and taken care off- especially that is likely that it is causing the post-coital bleeding and that you are now trying to conceive- absolutely you should go to see md and go from there. ...Read more
