Women who have a polyp, but no symptoms, should have regular ultrasound examinations to monitor the growth of the polyp.
On the other hand, patients with polyps larger than one centimeter in size and/or who manifest symptoms, should undergo polyp removal since it can become cancerous. This procedure is called polypectomy. The polyp is usually removed by hysteroscopy, but curettage is also possible. In either case, the tissue will be sent to the laboratory for analysis to verify that it is benign.
