Hello.

Thanks for your query.

Giving a confirmatory diagnosis of uterine polyp on ultrasound scan is quite difficult. It is very unlikely to see the origin of the polyp unless the uterine cavity is filled with blood or some fluid.

To confirm such a diagnosis hysteroscopy is the best option where then uterine cavity is visualised directly. Alternatively, Hysterosalpingography (HSG) can also be helpful where a filling defect is seen.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
Regards

Hello,

Thanks for writing back.

You must take the further tests like endometrial biopsy and removal of the polyp as sometimes these polyps may show an irregular growth leading to irregular bleeding episodes.
Specially at 45 years of age, you are more prone to irregular bleeds.


Hope I have answered your query completely.

Wish you an early recovery.
