Stomach polyps usually don't cause signs or symptoms. But as a stomach polyp enlarges, open sores (ulcers) may develop on its surface. In rare occurrences, the polyp blocks the opening between your stomach and your small intestine.

If you have stomach polyps, you may experience:

  • Pain or tenderness when you press your stomach area (abdomen)
  • Bleeding
  • Anemia

When to see a doctor

If you have any persistent signs or symptoms that worry you, make an appointment with your doctor.
