Uterine polyps, also called endometrial polyps, are small, soft growths on the inside of a woman’s uterus, or womb. They come from the tissue that lines the uterus, called the endometrium. Most uterine polyps aren’t cancer. But some might turn into cancer later on. The chances of that happening are higher if you’ve gone through menopause.
Polyps can also cause problems with fertility. They may keep you from getting pregnant or make you more likely to miscarry. That’s because they can keep a fertilized egg from attaching to your uterus or block your fallopian tubes or cervix.
