Customer Question

I had a D&C performed almost a year ago to remove 1 possibly 2 small uterine polyps. My question is when the procedure takes place is everything scraped sent to the lab? Or is only some of what is scraped sent? I ask this because those 1-2 small polyps I had were not able to identified at the lab by the pathologist. My obgyn who performed the D&C said it they might have been crushed while performing the D&C.
