Aim: All the patients presented to gynecology polyclinics with abnormal uterine bleeding either during the reproductive or the peri/
postmenopausal period underwent endometrial sampling to exclude endometrial pathologies. One endometrial pathology frequently
encountered in the histopathological examination of these samples is Endometrial Polyp (EP); and it is important that they are
recognized as they require a distinct treatment plan and can be associated with endometrial malignancies.
Material and Methods: In this study, we investigated the demographic and clinical findings and concomitant malignancies of the
cases diagnosed with endometrial polyps based on endometrial biopsy samples at Bezmialem Vakif University over a period of 7
years and compared our results with those in the literature.
Results: Our study determined an EP prevalence of 19% and only 11 (0.65%) of the 1694 cases were found to have “adenocarcinomas”
within/outside the polyp.
Conclusion: Considering that EPs may be associated with malignancies, histopathological examination must absolutely be performed
with adequate sampling.
