Cervical polyps: What are they?
Cervical polyps are growths on the cervix which are usually shaped like a finger or bulb. The polyps vary in color and shape, and they often cause no symptoms. Women aged older than 20, especially those who have given birth to one or more children, are more likely to have polyps on the cervix than other women are. Many women have cervical polyps, and these growths are rarely malignant (cancerous). But there's a chance that cancer may develop from a cervical polyp, that's why it's vitally important to have regular pelvic exams and Pap tests, and also have any symptoms which may be caused by polyps checked by a gynecologist.
