Polyps in the uterus

Polyps are grape-like growths that are sometimes found in the lining of the cervix or the uterus. There can be one or several polyps at the same time. They occur in 10-20% of pre-menopausal and post-menopausal women who’re examined for bleeding disturbances, and they are usually benign.


Even though the polyps are usually benign, they can cause a good deal of problems for some women, such as:

  • Bleeding between periods 
  • Bleeding during or after sex 
  • Vaginal discharge – heavy and watery

The polyps are removed. We do this either with a small telescope, or in a keyhole operation after dilating the cervix. 

You will be sent to a hospital for operation.
