Stomach polyps usually don't cause signs or symptoms.

But as a stomach polyp enlarges, open sores (ulcers) can develop on its surface. Rarely, the polyp can block the opening between your stomach and your small intestine.

Signs and symptoms of stomach polyps include:

  • Pain or tenderness when you press your abdomen
  • Nausea
  • Blood in your stool
  • Anemia

When to see a doctor

See your doctor if you have persistent blood in your stool or other signs or symptoms of stomach polyps.
