What are polyps?
A polyp is an abnormal tissue growth on a mucous membrane. These are small, flat bumps, or tiny mushroom-like stalks usually less than half-an-inch wide. Polyps can develop in various parts of the body like:
- Ear canal
There are various diagnostic tests for endometrial polyps like transvaginal ultrasound, hysteroscopy, and endometrial biopsy. The treatment methods include medications and surgical removal of the polyp. Even a benign polyp can cause several health risks and therefore, doctors prescribe its removal.
Hysteroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery in which a tiny telescope (hysteroscope) is inserted into the uterus through the cervix. The doctor can look inside and visualize the interior lining of the uterus and diagnose polyps or fibroids and then proceed to its removal. Hysteroscopy is a very effective technique for diagnosis and treatment of polyps.
How can hysteroscopy help with polyps?
With the help of hysteroscopy, your doctor might be able to:
- Diagnose polyps
- Remove endometrial or cervical polyps
- Perform biopsy of the endometrial lining
- Treat other intrauterine problems and issues related to heavy menstruation
Benefits of hysteroscopy over others:
Hysteroscopy has many advantages as compared to other methods of treatment:
- It is minimally invasive, meaning it does not require large incisions in the body.
- The recovery time is very less as compared to other techniques.
- The patients can go home the same day after hysteroscopic surgery.
- The pain is minimal.
- There is no wound, and hence, fewer chances of developing infections.
