  • Uterine Polyps

    Diagnosis and Treatment
    Sometimes polyps require no treatment. However, if they have compromised fertility or grown to the point of causing menorrhagia or metrorrhagia, doctors may opt to remove them. Also, polyps are seldom cancerous, but on the rare occasion that they are, it is necessary to remove them to prevent the spread of the disease. This can be done with the help of a hysteroscope and targeted removal, or in some cases with a D & C (dilation and curettage) which scrapes the lining of the uterus, removing any projecting bits of tissue.
