As medical technology that allows us to look inside the uterus improves, many women are told that they have a common abnormality of the uterine lining, called endometrial polyps. The best gynecologist in Queens that part of the Forest Hills Medical Services team will help you to decide on the right treatment option for your unique circumstances.
The uterus is mostly composed of muscle. The inside lining of the uterus is made of endometrial tissue that grows and shrinks during the menstrual cycle. If a woman does not become pregnant, this lining sheds during her period. After a period, the lining grows rapidly under the influence of hormones like estrogen. Polyps are areas that grow a little too much. As they grow, they usually fan out but remain attached to a small stalk.
These polyps can be as small as a sesame seed or as large as a golf ball. Rarely, polyps can grow to the size of an orange! In addition to uterine polyps, women can get a polyp on the edges of their cervix, in the area of their vagina or even the ovaries.
