What is the difference between an endometrial polyp and an endocervical polyp?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 07/05/2022

Endometrial polyps are those that appear inside the uterine cavity. Alternatively, there are also cervical polyps, which form at the edge of the cervix, and endocervical polyps, that are found inside the cervical canal.

Polyps that form in the cervix can grow to protrude into the vagina.
