Women of any age may have cervical polyp. It is very rarely cancerous. However, one cannot be sure unless it is removed and examined under microscope.

The cause of the polyp is unknown. It is not related to sexually transmitted diseases.

Cervical polyps often do not have any symptoms. It may sometimes cause bleeding between periods or after sexual intercourse.

Most cervical polyp is discovered during routine examination. To confirm that a polyp is benign, a biopsy (removal) is necessary with a small instrument. The base of the polyp may be scraped to make sure the entire polyp is removed. The biopsy can usually be done in the clinic. Removal of the womb is not necessary.

After treatment for a cervical polyp removal, the patient should continue to have periodic follow-up. If it recurs, it can be removed easily.
