What is Cervical Polypectomy?
Cervical polypectomy is a procedure in Singapore performed to remove polyps that develop on your cervix. Cervical polyps are small growths that develop along the cervical canal which connects from the uterus (womb) to the vagina. Most cervical polyps are non-cancerous and are common in females over the age of 20 and who have given birth to more than one child.
There are two types of cervical polyps, these are:
- Ectocervical polyps: develops on the outer part of the cervix.
- Endocervical polyps: most common type of polyps and it grows along the cervical canal.
A cervical polypectomy involves the use of specialised instruments to remove polyps from the cervix, which may alleviate your symptoms and reduce the risk of complications. Cervical polypectomy is typically done on an outpatient basis and is relatively quick and straightforward.
