Non-cancerous Gynecologic Abnormalities in Women
Non-cancerous gynecologic abnormalities are defects in the reproductive system of women. These defects in the vagina, cervix, uterus, or ovaries are benign or not virulent. They are the following conditions:
Cysts like Bartholin's glands cyst, Skene's duct cyst, endomitriomas of the vulva, vulvar inclusion cyst, epidermal cyst, and ovarian cyst
Polyps like cervical polyps
Myomas or tumors like uterine fibroids and ovarian tumorsEndomitriosis
All about Cysts
Cysts are closed sacs containing liquid and semisolid substances that are not part of the nearby tissues. Gynecologic cysts may be the result when a certain part of the reproductive system of a woman is blocked. When a duct, for example, is blocked, an area gets filled with mucus and enlarges. Cysts may be as small as the size of a pea or as large as that of an orange or even larger. Some gynecologic cysts cause no symptoms, but some are painful and may affect intercourse.
The gynecologic cysts are Bartholin's glands cyst, Skene's duct cyst, endomitriomas of the vulva, vulvar inclusion cyst, epidermal cyst, and ovarian cyst.
Bartholin's gland cysts are located in the Bartholin's glands, the glands on the sides of the vagina that produces lubricants during intercourse.
Skene's glands are located in the opening of the urethra, and Skene's duct cyst occurs when a duct of these glands is blocked.
Endomitriomas of the vulva occurs when patches of the tissues coming from the lining of the uterus protrude from the vulva forming a sac filled with blood and causing pain especially during intercourse.
Vulvar inclusion and epidermal cysts are located on the surface of the vulva, while ovarian cysts are found in either or both of the ovaries.
All about Polyps
Polyps are non-cancerous growths composed of sacs of tissues protruding so as to look like fingers. Non-cancerous cervical polyps are located in the duct through the cervix.
All about Myomas
Myomas are non-cancerous tumors made, in part, of muscle tissue. Cervical myomas are located in the cervix. Some myomas are asymptomatic, but some, especially cervical myomas, cause heavy or mild bleeding and pain during intercourse.
Fibroids are the most common non-cancerous tumor among women. Uterine fibroids are fibroids located in the muscle layer and connective tissues of the uterus while ovarian tumors are myomas located in the ovaries.

Frequently Asked Questions
My mother is 52 and has Uterine Fibroid polyp. The Cytology report says “Features consistent with ASCUS” and
“Advised polypectomy and follow up smears 8 weeks after treatment.” But our Gynecologist suggests Hysterectomy to prevent any future problems. Is this ok?
THERE IS A NEW TREATMENT FOR UTERINE FIBROIDS
IT IS LASER AND IT SHRINKS THE POLYPS WITHOUT SURGERY…
GET A SECOND OPINION.
surgery to remove polyps and fibroid no period yet can i get pregnant?
had surgery to remove polyps and fibroid on June 13. removed laproscopically. period normally comes around the 27th of the month.
This is one of those tough decisions where you cannot get pregnant if you don’t get those removed. On the other hand, if you get the surgery, that may also result in scar formation and prevent you from getting pregnant.
If you haven’t had the surgery yet, try to find out if they can give you the injection to reduce those growths. As far as I know it is an available option. You just get the injection at precise locations targeting the fibroids and those shrink. You can find out if that can be done for the polyps though.
Have patience, you may get lucky soon !
Good luck !
Can a small fibroid cause excessive bleeding during your cycle?
I had a hysteroscopy in Sept and since then I started bleeding heavy at first then went 2 months with only spotting. They removed some polyps but the fibroid was under the lining of my uterus so they left it. It is very small but not my cycles come regularly but I pass huge clots. I can go all day without any blood but around 8pm I pass a huge clot and mess up my clothes. What should I do?
i don’t think so.
Retained Placenta, Fibroid, or Ovarian Cyst??!!?
Looking for some advice from people in the health profession if possible. Here’s my story:
I had a late miscarriage at 16 weeks May 31 due to a Subchorionic Hemorrhage that caused an infection of Pepto-Streptococcus. I was given IV antibiotics in the hospital and a week’s worth of Doxycycline at home. Since then, my body has not been right which I know can be expected, but I seriously think something is wrong. I stopped the lochia bleeding mid June and started my “period” July 9. However I continued to bleed every other day throughout July and was prescribed Provera to stop the bleeding. It did stop the bleeding, however now there is a 3 cm Cyst on my left ovary and a fibroid or polyp in my uterus about 1 cm big. My 2 periods since Provera have been nothing but spotting, and I don’t think I’m ovulating.
NOW to the worrisome part:
I have been experiencing a very strange pain on my cervix or in that vicinity; as well as the urge to pee often. I also have horrible increasing ovarian/pelvic pain. I’ve tested negative for BV, Yeast, and Trich. Is there any chance what I’m being told is a fibroid is actually retained placenta thus causing infection?? I’ve seen 2 doctors and I’m SO FRUSTRATED AND SCARED!!!
Wanted to add: I would also like experience from someone who maybe has had retained placenta or an in utero infection or post partum infection. Thanks.
ummm, go back to the doctor, they would know for sure
