Uterine polyps are growths that occur inside the endometrium, the inner lining in the uterus (the organ by which a fetus grows). For that reason, they can be often named endometrial polyps.

Uterine polyps are formed by the overgrowth of endometrial tissue. They are connected to the endometrium by a thin stalk or perhaps a broad base and extend inward in to the uterus. The polyps might be round or oval, and assortment in dimension from a few millimeters (the size of a sesame seed) to several centimeters (the size of the golf ball), or bigger. There could be one or a number of polyps present. Uterine polyps are frequently benign (noncancerous), however they could trigger problems with menstruation (periods) or fertility (the ability to have young children).
