fleshy polyp(1) A nonspecific term for a pedunculated mass of dense fibroconnective tissue, usually of the lower female genital tract, covered by an attenuated mucosa.
(2) Pedunculated leiomyoma.
While the term fleshy polyp is not a recognised pathological entity and is not used in the working medical parlance, it fills a lexical void that may be used when explaining certain lesions to a patient or other less medically sophisticated audiences.
