Endometrial polyp removal

A polyp is a growth of tissue from the tissue that lines the endometrium (uterus). They are a common women's health condition.

Most polyps are non-cancerous but about 1 in 6 polyps have precancerous or cancerous changes within them.

Smaller polyps that are not causing you pain may go away on their own. You may be offered hormone medication which may lessen symptoms, however the long term solution is to surgically remove the polyps. 

Surgery is carried out during a hysteroscopy by your Consultant Gynaecologist, and the polyp removed and sent for analysis. If the polyp contains cancerous cells, you may require further treatment.​
