Caption: Cervical polyp. View of a polyp in the cervix of a 61-year-old woman as seen through a metal speculum. The polyp (red, at centre) is a non- cancerous (benign) abnormal growth (tumour) of the mucous membrane. The cervix is the passageway that links the uterus and the vagina. Cervical polyps are surgically removed if they cause symptoms or if it is suspected that they are becoming cancerous.
