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?

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

Will I be in pain after removing a cervical polyp?

Will I be in pain after removing a cervical polyp?

Maybe a little: Any pain due to removal of a cervical polyp is usually limited to the procedure itself, and you can generally return to your everyday activities almost immediately. Taking Ibuprofen before the procedure can reduce pain, and most individuals find that if they need any pain medicine at all afterward, Ibuprofen is sufficient. You may also have some spotting after the procedure. ...Read more

Why do docs recommend removing cervical polyp while pregnant if the polyp is bleeding? Wouldn't the bleeding stop eventually or could it be endless?

Why do docs recommend removing cervical polyp while pregnant if the polyp is bleeding? Wouldn't the bleeding stop eventually or could it be endless?

Bleeding : Most of the cervical polyps are benign so normally they would leave it alone until after the pregnancy. If the polyp is rather large then they might be concerned that the bleeding might cover up other potentially important sources of bleeding related to the pregnancy. It is probably because of the size and continued bleeding that they want to take it out. ...Read more

Having bloat/pinch pains in pelvic region.Dr said have cervical polyp. Did pap b4 removing. UA normal. last pap 6m ago normal. Why the pains & bloat?

Many possibilities.: Your pain and bloating may not be related to the polyp at all. Polyps usually cause irregular bleeding but otherwise are asymptomatic. Pain and bloating could be a symptom of ovarian cancer or ovarian cysts. A thorough work up should be performed including transvaginal ultrasound. Pelvic pain has many possible causes. See your doctor for further diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

What do neoplastic lymphoid follicles mean? diangosis rectal ca pt1n0. Md suspects cervical mets due to cervical polyp/pelvic fluid/pain. Can cancer spread from rectum to cervix w/o lymph nodes involvement?

What do neoplastic lymphoid follicles mean? diangosis rectal ca pt1n0.  Md suspects cervical mets due to cervical polyp/pelvic fluid/pain. Can cancer spread from rectum to cervix w/o lymph nodes involvement?

Unlikely: Cancer of the rectum can spread into cervix but only by local extension which is not the case here. I suspect the polyp in the cervix is unrelated to the rectal ca which is quite early in this case. But it should be removed and examined just to make sure that it is benign. ...Read more

I recently got diagnosed with a cervical polyp, my dr. Wants to wait 4 to 6 weeks to see if it will go away on its own, what do u think?

Probably ok: Most polyps are benign. You may want to have a sonohysterogram, an ultrasound with fluid in the uterus, to see if there are more polyps inside the cavity. Polyps can bleed with intercourse and we usually remove them and send them to the pathologist. ...Read more
