Caption: Cancer of the colon. Endoscopic view of tubulovillous adenoma and a small adenocarcinoma in the transverse colon of the large intestine. A tubulovillous adenoma is a type of polyp (growth) in the gastrointestinal tract. These polyp are typically benign (non-cancerous) but may become malignant (cancerous). Adenocarcinomas are a form of colorectal cancer arising from glandular epithelial tissue. Adenocarcinoma accounts for 90-95 per cent of all colorectal cancers. Certain dietary habits, such as a diet high in fat, appear to be significant risk factors.
