Question: Long fleshy growth attached to bottom og Vaginal wall

 Afrin - Thu Jul 02, 2009 9:44 pm

Earlier today, I found this fleshy, long growth literally hanging out from my vagina. It is relatively thin and flesh colored, and I think around an inch long. It starts near the opening of my vagina and is attached to the wall. Frankly, I'm scared that this could be serious and if anybody could help me get any information on this before I go to my gyno I would be soo thankful.

User avatar Hello,
This sounds like a polyp and these are harmless, requiring no treatment unless they cause pain or bleeding. Women often have them without even being aware.

Try to relax until you see your doctor - chances are excellent it is nothing serious.

Best wishes.
