Q: i have polyps in my vagina

I have polyps in my vagina. It was diagnosed by my gynecologist. I was scheduled for a biopsy and colposcopy. The findings were vaginal polyps, and my gynecologist removed them. After a year, polyps again developed with a larger size. What does it imply? What treatment would I undergo?

I would ask your gynecologist these questions since they have treated you already.If you have been found to have more polyps, then you are already working with your doctor and that is your best source of information. You can choose to get a second opinion if you wish.

 

If you've had them removed once, then you have a good idea of what treatments are available. Your doctor would best be able to tell you why you are prone to polyps redeveloping and what the implications are.

I see it has been a while since you posted.  Did you return for another treatment?  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but most of these types of polyps are benign.  They can cause other symptoms though, such as affecting your menstruation or causing discomfort.  I would suggest seeing your doctor again.  They will likely do another biopsy again to make sure the new polyps are not cancerous.

 

If you have already been treated, please consider returning and letting us know how you are doing.  I'm sure your experience can help out others in the community.

 

Best of luck!
