Hello doctor,

I have a gingival polyp that has been removed three times but keeps growing back. Do I have to live with this or is there a way to permanently remove this?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I had gone through your question I can understand your concern. No, you do not have to live with it throughout your life. Make sure you get the polyp excised from a periodontist or an oral surgeon. There are chances of recurrences sometimes and because of your bad luck, you fall among them.
