Introduction

The cervical polyp is most common benign lesion of cervix which arises from endocervix rather than ectocervix [2]. They may be sessile, hemispheric masses or pedunculated, spherical lesions up to 3cm in diameter. Those with long stalk may be seen on clinical examination, hanging down through the exocervical os and causing dilatation of cervix. Although polyps are common, occurring in 2 to 5% of adult females, they are innocuous, occasionally being important as a cause of abnormal bleeding that must be differentiated from that due to more ominous causes. About 1% of cervical polyp will show neoplastic change which may lead to cancer. The cause of cervical polyp is uncertain but may be due to hyper-oestrinism, chronic irritation by infection or localized vascular congestion. They are most common in pre-menopausal women and rarely in premenstrual girls and postmenopausal women [3][4]. Patient is mostly asymptomatic but sometimes they produce symptom which include irregular uterine bleeding either pre or postmenopausal or contact bleeding if polyp is situated outside the cervix [3][5][6].

It can be detected by gynaecologist during routine pelvic examination by speculum, hysteroscopy ultrasonography and Hysterosalpingography.

Background
