some type of gland/mass

This is a question I have as I'm waiting for my appointment for the doctor. My after my last cycle, I had this feeling of like a gland or mass type thing, protruding out of my cervix area. I had a look in the mirror, and it's this redish colour type glad/mass, and I'm not sure if it's the reasons for my extrememly heavy periods. I was doing some research and was wondering if it was a fibroid gland at all? I read that fibroid glands are attatched by a stalk like thing, and this thing seems to have a stalk from what i can tell, but then I'm not sure if fibroid glands are exposed or just underneath the uterus wall?

any information would be great!
