Endometrial Polyps Treatment from miVIP

Gain Peace of Mind and Relief with Treatment from the Best

Endometrial polyps, also known as uterine polyps, are small growths that are originally found inside the inner wall of the uterus but may eventually grow in to the uterine cavity. Typically, these polyps are non-cancerous, but occasionally cases of uterine polyps lead to cancer.

These growths can range in size from a sesame seed to larger than a golf ball. They attach to the uterine wall with either a large base or a thin stalk. It’s possible to be diagnosed with several different types of polyps, and occasionally a polyp may slip through the cervix and into the vaginal area.

Diagnosis of Endometrial Polyps

This condition is typically diagnosed with the help of a transvaginal ultrasound, a hysteroscopy or a curettage.

  • Transvaginal Ultrasound – A small device is used to take a picture of the inside of the uterus, through the vagina.
  • Hysteroscopy – A small telescope is placed into the vagina and cervix in order to obtain visual access to the inside of the uterus.
  • Curettage – The interior walls of the uterus are scraped with a looped metal instrument.

Common Causes of Endometrial Polyps

Although a direct cause of endometrial or uterine polyps is unknown, experts do believe there is a correlation between the occurrence and hormones. Polyps may grow when more estrogen is circulated through the body.

Symptoms of Endometrial Polyps

If you have any of the following symptoms, you may need to see a doctor for treatment for this condition.

  • Infertility
  • Post-menopausal vaginal bleeding
  • Heavy or unpredictable bleeding during menstrual periods

Occasionally, women with polyps may not notice any symptoms or may have very light bleeding during menstrual periods.

Treatment Options from miVIP

Once polyps have been identified by a surgeon from miVIP, a hysteroscopy may be used as a minimally invasive surgical treatment for uterine polyps. During this procedure, small instruments are used to remove polyps through tiny incisions. Polyps may be sent to the lab for further testing after they are removed.

We also offer a uterine ablation procedure, during which the inner lining of the uterus is destroyed. Schedule a consultation with one of our world class surgeons to discuss our surgical treatment options for this condition.

Hormone medications may be used to treat endometrial polyps, but symptoms often recur once the medications are stopped. Non-surgical treatments are considered a short term solution to the condition.
