Yes I am sure: Your doc who removed them spoke with you about that if he or she didn't then u need to ask them when u come back for your post-op check, and sometimes you can have that and another reason, so you need to ask them if anything else needs to be checked before you try.

I have polyps in my uterus. I've heard that they should be removed but my obgyn says otherwise. Should I get them scraped out or leave them alone?

Polyps: If there are polyps in your uterus (not on your cervix), generally they are removed because they can cause abnormal bleeding. Cervical polyps are removed if you have bleeding with sex. Talk with your doc.

Polyp: The pathologist looks at the tissue under the microscope and determines if the cells are abnormal looking. This is the way polyps are diagnosed as benign or malignant.

Bros gf went to dr today and she said she has a polyp that needs to be removed, a tear in her uterus, and needs a DNC. Cause of burning when she pees.

Possible UTI: Superimposed on GYN issues. She will need a urine culture and analysis as well as prophylactic antibiotic therapy, after a thorough GYN exam.

My mom s gyn. Removed a 6mm uterus polyp. The uterus and ovaris normal. He sent polyp for pathology. Gyn view was that polyp is benign. Shall we wait?

Wait for the report: The gyne sent the polyp to be analyzed by a pathologist to rule out cancer. The clinical impression at the time of surgery is very often right, but would wait for the final pathology report to make sure there is no microscopic abnormality.

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.

What are polyps in uterus? Are they malignant? 2 polyps found in mom's uterus and got removed, sent to biopsy. Do they reoccur. Size: 3x2 cms

Depends on path: Wait for the pathology report but polyps can be either a benign or cancererous finding or in fact somerwhere in between. They may indeed recur and could be a risk factor for endometrial cancer.

What is the risk in % that a 6mm uterus polyp be cancerous if after being removed gyn said it is benign. Uterus & ovaries normal. Age is 56 yrs?

What is the risk in % that a 6mm uterus polyp be cancerous if after being removed gyn said it is benign. Uterus & ovaries normal. Age is 56 yrs?

Pathology report?: If the uterine polyp was sent for analysis to the pathology lab and that report by the pathologist was benign- then it is unlikely to be cancer. Ask the gyn for a copy of that report for your records and peace of mind.

If a 6mm uterine polyp is cancerous and uterus normal and ovaries also and if the uterus is removed will that end 100% cancer. If not what re the risk?

Low: A well-differentiated primary adenocarcinoma of the endometrium 6 mm across, confined to the endometrium on pathology exam carries an excellent prognosis, and I would urge you to be thankful and go about your life. You need to get with your physician and get the details -- you have a right to your pathology report. Best wishes.

Missing period for 4 months, not pregnant. Polyp removed from uterus 1 yr ago. Should I be concerned about return of polyp?

Missing period for 4 months, not pregnant. Polyp removed from uterus 1 yr ago. Should I be concerned about return of polyp?

Well, you are - so,: Contact the doctor who treated you and ask for evaluation and opinion. While you are a little young, menopause might be the reason for not having a period. Your obgyn should be able to help you determine this as well. Best wishes for reassuring answers.

Depends: If you have polyps already at the age of 18 then this needs further evaluation and you also might consider an evaluation with a hysteroscope

Gyno planned novasure proc. (bleeding)- removed polyp & mirena (levonorgestrel) (d&c). Never had novasure - gyno says machine failed x2 punctured uterus? Confused!?

Good: The novasure can perforate the uterus and cause a burn to the bowels. You dr was right to stop the procedure. You may want to consider a different method if you try again.
