I got a letter in today from my Gynocologist telling me that my ultrasound showed i had a cervical polyp or a cyst. Are these the same thing? How worried should i be? Reading info on the internet is scary...lol...Anybody else out there with this? I have an appointment in 2 weeks to follow up for an exam.
I have had cervical polyps in the past. They have always been discovered during my pelvic exam. They are removed right there in the office and sent for testing. I wonder if yours is on the backside of your cervix. Did you have a pelvic exam? Why did you have an ultrasound? Sorry for all the questions, but I don't know how old you are, or if you are menopuasal, perimenopausal or premenopausal.... Let us know
I also had some cervical polyps discovered during an exam. They must have been small because he zapped them with silver nitrate sticks (?) and burned them off. Had some cramping and light bleeding but that was the end of that. Gosh, it must have been over 35 years ago.
