Cervical Polyps

What are Cervical Polyps?

Cervical polyps are small, soft, growths that protrude from the mouth of the cervix. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb) and is often called the neck of the womb.

Your cervix can be seen when you have a pap smear and can be felt when you have an internal examination by a doctor or nurse.

Cervical polyps are very common. They occur most often during pregnancy (because of hormonal changes). You may have 1 polyp or several.

In some cases, cervical polyps can block the cervix and cause problems getting pregnant.

Cervical polyps are non-cancerous.
