What Is Endometrial Polyp Cancer?

Q:

What is endometrial polyps?

A:

Uterine 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 leads to the formation of uterine polyps, also known as endometrial polyps. These polyps are usually noncancerous, although some can be cancerous or can eventually turn into cancer.

Q:

What are the sizes of endometrial polyps?

A:

Uterine polyps range in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters. The golf-ball-size or even larger polyps are very dangerous. They attach to the uterine wall by a large base or a thin stalk.

Endometrial polyps most commonly occur in women who are going through or have completed menopause, although younger women can get them.
