An endometrial polyp represents the extreme end of macroscopic hyperplasia of the endometrium when tissue grows so fast that parts of the endometrium are pushed into the cavity of the uterus. They may be a cause of menorrhagia and of post menopausal bleeding.

Diagnosis requires dilatation of the cervix and exploration of the uterine cavity with ring forceps. All endometrial tissue must be examined histologically because of the association with endometrial carcinoma.
