uterine polyps
I am 70 and have no symptoms but detected a uterine polyp during a routine ultrasound.  Is surgery necessary at this time or should it be monitered for a period?

Not necessary unless large or bleeding, I think.  Ask your doc, or another doctor if you don't think yours is giving you good advice.

Thanks.  This was also my thoughts.  Meeting with Dr. next week, but wanted my own opinion before I heard his.

   How should it be monitored?  Uterine biopsy or another transvaginal ultasound?  How often if no other symptoms are detected? After over a year still asyptomatic.
