Endometrial Polyps Treatment in Brooklyn
Endometrial polyps are one of the most common etiologies of abnormal genital bleeding in both premenopausal and postmenopausal women. They are hyperplastic overgrowths of endometrial glands and stroma that form a projection from the surface of the endometrium (lining of the uterus). They may also be asymptomatic but can also cause abnormal uterine bleeding. The great majority of endometrial polyps are benign, but malignancy occurs in some.
For premenopausal women, symptomatic polyps require removal. We also suggest removal of asymptomatic polyps in premenopausal women with risk factors for endometrial hyperplasia or cancer. Polypectomy is also a reasonable option for women with polyps that are >1.5 cm, multiple, or prolapsed, or for women who are infertile. For postmenopausal women, we recommend removal of all endometrial polyp.
