Could I have a endometrial polyp 5 weeks after miscarriage and d&c?

Gravida 3 para 2. My last pregnancy ended 5 weeks ago due to Iufd, no known cause. I was induced and had a vaginal delivery and then had to have a d&c an hour later to remove placenta. My ob ordered a vaginal US yesterday to see if I had a uterine septum . On the transvaginal  US the tech said she thought she saw a endometrial polyp with"a little" fluid( I started my period 4days ago also) . My ob didn't seem concerned , he said he still wanted to remove it so it would no cause a problem in the future. My ob said my d&c biopsy was negative for cancer and not to worry about cancer. However I am scared! He wants to do a hysteroscopy to remove and make sure there is not a small uterine septum. I am 29y.o. I do want to have another baby. I'm concerned that the d&c and now a hysteroscopy in less than 8 weeks may cause scar tissue or damage to would prevent a future pregnancy. I also don't understand how I could have a polyp 5 weeks after a d&c, could it be something else? Any advise would be appreciated. Thank you.

Endometrial polyp is a mass in the inner lining of the uterus and they appear to be affected by hormone levels and grow in response to circulating estrogen. They do not appear so soon but in your case they may have been present before as endomterial polyps can cause misacriage. Moreover it can cause difficulty in conception if found close to fallopian tube. Hence follow your doctor’s advice and get it removed.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
