HI Lyn

Please do not worry. I know that’s easy to say when you have health anxiety I have that too so I totally get it. I recently had post menopausal bleed and it freaked me out. I was so bad I ended up paying private for the scan. All was well.

Cervical polyps are very common especially post menopause. But they can happen any age. I too had them many years ago and had them removed. They are nearly always benign. You may have had the polyps some time lots of women have them and don’t know. If you still continue worrying about it go back to your GP and explain your concern. Hope this helps
