Treatment Of Patients With Endometrial Polyps At The Age Of 18 Years?
please help me, I am an 18 year old woman yesterday I was sentenced to suffer from endometrial polyps located on the left side but the doctor said I could not do curettage because I was still a girl, is my endometrial polyp harmless? The shape was small, it used to be big like a golf ball. I thought it was just normal swelling. Why didn’t the doctor curate me? Can cured if totally cured? Another question, is endometrial polyps caused by cats? Thank you for the answer, I feel very depressed right now.
Good evening Alvieta, thanks for your question.
Endometrial polyps are generally not life-threatening and based on research, these polyps rarely become cancerous in only about 0-12% of the cases that change. One of the symptoms, namely bleeding out of the birth canal which may be a danger if the bleeding continues to come out for a long time and in large amounts, by therefore, if symptoms arise like this immediately contact your obstetrician.
One of the reasons your doctor cannot curettage you, as your doctor has explained, is because you are still a girl. Curettage is one of the actions by inserting a device called a curette tool into the uterus through the genitals to clean existing polyps, because you are still a girl, it is not recommended to do this action because it can damage the hymen so that it can cause a stigma that you not a 'virgin' anymore. Therefore in the medical world, not only are curettages avoided, some other actions that can tear the hymen in a girl are generally avoided unless the patient wants to be done.
Whether it can recover completely or not, based on research 25% of polyps can disappear by themselves, and after the action the number of cases of recurrence is around 2.5-3.7%, but you should ask your obstetrician further.
The cause of endometrial polyps is still unknown, but interacting with cats is not a risk factor for polyps. Some risk factors that can cause polyps are:
Obesity Older age High blood pressure Use of certain hormonal drugs Other uterine diseases Hope it helps. thanks.
