Cervical Polyp: Causes, Symptoms & Treatment with Ayurveda


Cervix is a tube-like passage that joins the uterus with vagina. Cervical polyps are the abnormal growths not cancerous (benign) commonly seen on the cervix where it adjoins the vagina, and can occur alone or in groups also. They usually vary in size and colour. These polyps are mostly cherry-red or reddish-purple or greyish-white. Usually these polyps are small, about 1-2 cm long. Polyps can be easily misdiagnosed with fibroids as they resemble imaging tests like USG and both have similar symptoms of abdominal cramps and abnormal menstrual bleeding. So to know whether it’s polyp or fibroid we should know about tissue structure and cells that are responsible for growth. Main responsible tissue is endometrial tissue that also lines the uterus and here forms the polyp. In this article we are going to discuss symptoms and the role of treatment by the healthcare team for Cervical polyps patients.
