Surgery for endometrial polyp removal

Normally, endometrial polyps are detected when the woman visits her OB/GYN for a routine visit. They can be seen through transvaginal ultrasound.

To confirm the diagnosis, two methods can be used:

Hysterosonogram
Also known as hydrosonography, it involves fluid injection (a saline solution) to be able to see the polyp more accurately.
Hysteroscopy
The uterine cavity is observed by means of an endoscopy. This technique is also used to remove the polyp (hysteroscopic polypectomy).
