Cervical Polyp Removal



Cervical polyps are pedunculated masses that vary in size from several millimeters to centimeters, are usually found in the endocervical canal, and protrude from the cervical os (Fig. 9-1). Occasionally, polyps protruding from the cervical os are endometrial in origin. Cervical polyps are often single, but they can be multiple. They are usually bright red, spongy in nature, and friable.
