Uterine polyps are growths attached to the inner wall of a woman’s uterus that extend into its cavity; they can form from overgrowth in cells lining up with one another. Typically, they are noncancerous, however some can be cancerous.
Polyp growth can range from a few millimeters up to several centimeters in size and shape. Regardless of the size and/or shape, they can be quite the nuisance, causing irregular and/or heavy vaginal bleeding.
Uterine polyps can be quite burdensome, however they’re actually quite simple to remove. The best way for Dr. Jeyalinam to remove these growths is through the use of a hysteroscopy procedure.
