Thank you for this very well written explanation between a fibroid and a polyp. I recently had an ultrasound done - and the technician told me what I had growing inside my cervix was a "polyp" (it was one of 3 but the largest at 6 cm). I had always been told "it" was a fibroid over the last 30 years - but now due to abnormal bleeding / pain. I'm hoping my gyno either takes the route of hysterectomy (my pref) OR removal of the polyps. Printing up your page for future reference!
