Hello....Earlier this month I was having pelvic pain and had a transvaginal ultrasound. Today the results showed that I have a possible polyp on my uterine wall and a thick edometrial lining. Is this normal???...I am freaking out!! Please help!!!
Endometrial polyps are usually benign although some may be precancerous or cancerous. About 0.5% of endometrial polyps contain adenocarcinoma cells. Polyps can increase the risk of miscarriage in women undergoing IVF treatment. If they develop near the fallopian tubes, they may lead to difficulty in becoming pregnant. Although treatments such as hysteroscopy usually cure the polyp concerned, recurrence of endometrial polyps is frequent. Untreated, small polyps may regress on their own.
Most are usually benign which is a good thing. I wouldnt worry about it but I would look into seeing if it is 100% a polyp and if so have it removed.
