Question
5 months ago had uterine polyp 2cm had hysteroscopy, d&c and polypectomy .  All path came back no
Hyperplasia of any evidence of malignancy all benign .  Just found out have another polyp .  How likely cancerous since had full biopsy 5 months ago

Answer
Hello Jill:

Each lesion has to be assessed on its own. It would be speculation on my part to say that the polyp will be benign or cancer. There are no parameters to guide about the nature of polyp other than examining it.
Please wait for the biopsy report for an answer
Wish you good health.
