Are endometrial polyps and malignant uterine fibroids the same?

The polyps and fibroids that appear in the uterus are not exactly the same, although they do present the same symptoms as bleeding. Fibroids, like polyps, are also benign tumors with minimal risk of becoming malignant.

The difference between the two is that fibroids form from the uterine muscle and can grow to a large size, while polyps form from endometrial tissue and can remove themselves.
