They can occur in a variety of bodily sites like in the colon, in the nasal sinuses, or even in the gallbladder. In gynecology, the polyps are usually located in the uterus or in the cervix

WHERE DO THEY DEVELOP

Uterine polyps arise from the endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus or from the cervix, the mouth of the womb and rarely from the vaginal wall.

WHAT SYMPTOMS DO ENDOMETRIAL POLYP GIVE
