Uterine polyp is a common condition affecting over 1 million people every year in India. They are benign growths attached to uterine lining. Overgrown endometerium cells lead to uterine polyps. They are also called endometrial polyps. It is possible to have more than one polyp. The polyps formed can range from few millimeters to few centimeters. They generally occur within the uterus, but sometimes they may slip into the vagina through the cervix—the lowermost part of the uterus.
