Endometrial Polyp?????

Hi sisters, I had my 6 week checkup today and my doc let me read the pathology report. The only thing I really understood were too things:

1. uterus weight 143 g
2. presence of endometrial polyp

Now, I was hoping there would be some logical explanation as to why my periods had become so heavy and clots so large (golf ball size), and cramping so bad.

Has anybody else's doc enlightened them as to whether or not polyp's can cause this? I asked him and he just said "there's no way to tell, sometimes they come and go with your cycle".

Anybody else know anything about this???

I can't awnser your question on the endometrial polyp - but would be interested to know the answer - my pathology report had that listed too.

Endometrial Polyp?????

According to my Miller-Kean Encyclopedia and Dictionary of Medicine, Nursing, and Allied Health, a polyp is "any growth or mass protruding from a mucous membrane....they are usually an overgrowth of normal tissue, but sometimes polyps are true tumors....Usually benign, they may lead to complications or eventually become malignant."

Here's the part about endometrial polyps from the same source: "Polyps are most commonly found in the uterus where they may cause excessive menstrual flow and sometimes sterility. They are often removed by surgery."

If you have any questions about your path reports, you should always ask your doc, since he or she is best equipped to sort through all the medical mumbo-jumbo and explain things to you. Hope this helps!

Endometrial Polyp?????

I had endometrial polyps removed in Dec. 04 during a D&C. I had had an ablasion scheduled for the heavy bleeding, nasty clumps of blood, etc. but it was canceled due to suspicious findings at my pre-op ultrasound. Me Dr. said the polyps can cause irritation of the endo. lining, and cause some of the bad bleeding. The polyp looks like a little broccoli twig, or mushroom, with a big top coming off of a stem.

I spend almost an hour looking up terms from my path report! Did you get a copy, or just read it in the office. I asked for a copy. I had to sign a release but then I could get a copy.
