Cervix Polyps

Cervix polyps may be biopsied and removed if they show ASCUS results on a pap smear. They are small, fragile, fingerlike growths on the mucosal surface of the cervix or endocervical canal. Its cause is not completely understood, it is frequently the result of various infections, chronic inflammation, or congestion of cervical blood vessels. Some cervical cancers may first appear as a polyp. Cervix polyps may be biopsied and removed if they show ASCUS results on a pap smear.
