We have an explanation. Polyps and fibroids have many similarities when it comes to symptoms, but the difference lies in their nature.
🔹Uterine polyps have a different nature. They consist of endometrial tissue and grow on the uterine lining. Polyps can develop in women before and after menopause and can lead to serious health issues.
However, there are more differences to consider:
🔸Polyps may eventually decrease and even completely disappear; uterine fibroids can shrink with treatment like UFE or after menopause;
🔸 Polyps are usually small in size. Fibroids in the absence of treatment can reach the size of a large ball;
🔹Fibroids often affect women between 35-45 years old. Polyps can occur in younger and post-menopausal women alike.
🔶Both of these conditions also have many similarities:
- Both of them are benign and rarely degenerate into malignant tumors;
- A patient can have one or multiple fibroids or polyps alike;
- Polyps are typically very small; often only several mm in size. While fibroids can be that small, they are usually larger, anywhere from ten to as much as one hundred times as large.
- Fibroids and polyps can cause bleeding; Both of these conditions can lead to disruptions of the reproductive system and affect fertility.
🔶 Both of these conditions can lead to disruptions of the reproductive system and affect fertility.
🔵 If you have any of these symptoms, consult a doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor will often look to imaging to explain your symptoms (ex. heavy menstrual periods). If there are no fibroids or polyps on a regular pelvic ultrasound, a special ultrasound study called a saline sonohysterogram may be necessary. This study can detect small polyps that cannot be seen on a regular transvaginal ultrasound.
While uterine fibroids are typically diagnosed with pelvic ultrasound, these tumors are much better evaluated with a pelvic MRI.

Criminalization of black girls in schools is a big problem in the UK too and it needs to be addressed. I love checking these teachers and a massive shout out to the parents that go beast mode on these bitches. The hate is real out here but our love is bigger. #wewillheal @dopeblackness

If we don’t start supporting our own and building our own communities . They will always control us and our children. We will be leaving a situation worse than we are in for our kids. Does that not scare you That our children may have to fight an even harder fight, than the one we are right fighting right now. That our ignorance will be the bullet that kills our children’s future. Think about that for a second. History is repeating itself. Are we going to act like we don’t see it Until we unite and support our own. We must take responsibility for allowing them to do this to us. --------------------------------------------------@brothahassan
The BLACK alpha male that is willing to die fighting the system of racism white supremacy is slowly becoming extinct... we rather entertain white people without athletic ability, amazing singing voices, impress them with our degrees, marry their children, Coon on television or social media. 🤷🏿🤦🏿 R🥊B🖤G💸 #Brothahassan speaking is : ( #drfrancescresswelsing ) --------------------------------------------------
