Uterine polyps are growths attached to inner wall of the uterus and protruding into the uterine cavity. Overgrowth of cells in the lining of the uterus (endometrium) leads to the formation of uterine polyps. The sizes of uterine polyps range from a few millimeters — no larger than a sesame seed — to several centimeters — golf ball sized or larger. They are attached to the uterine wall by a large base or a thin stalk.

not only that, if you also noticed excessively heavy menstrual periods or bleeding between menstrual periods, be very cautious.

Uterine polyps, is a mass in the inner lining of the uterus. For, me, it's very alarming and woman who have it must consult immediately to a doctor and ask for immediate treatment.
