Síntomas:

  • Períodos anormalmente abundantes (menorragia)
  • Sangrado vaginal anormal
    • después de la ducha
    • después de las relaciones sexuales
    • después de la menopausia
    • entre los períodos menstruales

Los pólipos pueden ser asintomáticos.

Signos y exámenes:

Durante un examen pélvico, el médico observará neoplasias en forma de dedo, lisas y de color rojo o violáceo sobre el cuello uterino. Una biopsia cervical casi siempre mostrará células que son indicativas de un pólipo benigno. En raras ocasiones, puede haber células anormales y precancerosas o cancerosas en un pólipo.
