    Can cervical polyp be cancerous?
    I went my genyspecialist today. She found a little polyp on my cervix amd remove it . Sent it to pathology . He did transvaginal ultrasonogram. She told me that my cervis looks healthy but little bit inflammed. That's why when she touch blood come.after intercourse I also notice vaginal spotting. She told me it need to be freezing . Why I need cryotherapy though I have an normal pap result.

    I am curious why these weren't asked of your gyn when you were there.

    A normal pap means that there's no cancerous, or pre-cancerous, cells on the cervix. You can have both an inflamed cervix and a normal paptest. I am curious about the cryotherapy and normal pap. I would have thought they would investigate the cause for the inflamed cervix and go from there. Maybe they're just assuming and doing that just to be safe though it seems reckless.

    Again these are questions that you need to be asking your doctor. There is a thought process that we're not a part of going on here and we can't and won't assume what it means.

    If the spot where the polyp was removed tends to bleed a little, then it would be normal to freeze the spot so that a little tough scar tissue forms there. Nothing to do with cancer at all.

    The doctor didn't give you any instructions? I'd call the office and ask the questions so they can refer to your specific case.

    Yes, it's normal with normal polyp removal to have some spotting or bleeding for a few days, but as was said, your doctor should have discussed that with you or provided you with written information. Check back with them for the information.

    So, call her office and ask to speak with the doctor. Always ask for instructions after a procedure.

    They usually give it verbally, or written. You have asked so many questions on this topic, we KEEP on telling you to ASK questions when you are there.

    Congratulations on finally talking to a doctor to get a diagnosis. Besides getting this, did they give you any other information on this?

    You know what your cervix is right?

    Erythroplakia generally denotes, if you Google it like I did, a read area on a mucous membrane. IE your cervix. So it basically says you've got an inflamed cervix. What to be careful about this is that erythroplakia is other used to describe pre-cancerous lesions, which isn't your case because you've told us your pap is normal. Do they know why your cervix is inflammed?

    Erythroplakia

    Leukoplakia and erythroplakia | Gynecology Consultation

    Thinning of the layers of the epithelium covering the cervix is called erythroplakia. This red patches, sometimes with a bluish tint. Redness due to thinning of the epithelium and closely spaced vessels. Some areas may be keratinized. Diagnosis is made by colposcopy study. Treatment is similar to the treatment of leukoplakia. The success of treatment depends on the detection of the disease at an early stage. With regard to the causes of erythroplakia, they are not fully understood. The same is true in the case of leukoplakia. Hypotheses about the origin of these diseases are similar.

    Yes we know about that, you have made it abundantly clear that you have bloody discharge.

    Why are you asking us questions you need to be asking your doctor. Be insistent, but they're the best source for this information.
