Endometrial Polyps

Endometrial Polyps are growths attached to the inner wall of the uterus that extend into the uterine cavity. Overgrowth of cells in the lining of the uterus (endometrium) leads to the formation of Endometrial Polyps, also known as uterine polyps. These polyps are usually noncancerous (benign), although some can be cancerous or can eventually turn into cancer (precancerous polyps).

It is rare for Endometrial Polyps to be cancerous. If they aren't causing problems, monitoring the polyps over time is a reasonable approach.
