Caption: Inflamed intestinal polyp. Endoscopic view of an inflamed polyp (centre-right) at the junction of the rectum and sigmoid colon of the large intestine. Polyps are benign (non-cancerous) growths that arise from mucous membranes. Although benign, polyps are generally removed surgically as their growth may obstruct the passage of food, and some polyps may turn cancerous over time. This polyp was caused by now inactive ulcerative colitis.
