Are uterine polyps cancerous?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).

There is no reason why. Most polyps that appear in the uterus are benign, but there are about 5% that become malignant. The important thing is to monitor this growth in the uterus and, if it causes symptoms such as abnormal bleeding, it should be removed.
