Cervical polyp- cervical polyp removal, cervical polyp pregnancy

What is Cervical polyp?

Cervical polyps are growths that usually come from the cervical canal opening in the vagina. The polyps are usually cherry-red to reddish-purple or grayish-white. They vary in size and often look like bulbs on thin stems. Cervical polyps are usually benign (not cancerous) and can occur alone or in groups.

Cervical polyps are masses of excess cell tissue, or tumors, that have built up in the canal between the uterus and the vagina.Most cervical polyps are discovered during pelvic exams or colposcopies. The growths are usually small—less than a half-inch across—and are not known to cause pain or discomfort.

Cervical polyps is a projectile growth originating from the mucosal surface of the cervix, or even the endocervical cannall.  It is a small growth that hang from a stalk and sticks out (protrude) through the internal or exterior os (or cervical opening)
