Caption: Colorectal polyp. Light micrograph of a section through a colorectal polyp. The rectum is the end portion of the colon (large intestine). Polyps are small benign (non-cancerous) growths that arise from the mucous lining of the intestines. The cause of most polyps is not known, although a diet high in animal fat and red meat and low in fibre, may be a risk factor. Some polyps are caused by diseases, such as familial polyposis or irritable bowel syndrome. Polyps should be surgically removed as they may become malignant (cancerous). Magnification: x60 when printed at 10 centimetres wide. Human tissue.
