Caption: Benign stomach growths. Endoscopic view of the stomach lining (gastric mucosa), showing numerous benign (non-cancerous) hyperplastic gastric polyps (round). A polyp is an abnormal growth of tissue projecting from a mucous membrane. Hyperplastic polyps are composed of many tiny dilated glands. Benign gastric polyps tend not to cause problems but it is not possible to tell if they are benign or cancerous (malignant) without removing them. Doctors will, therefore, often remove those that they find. They may also be removed if they become too large (greater than 1-2 centimetres).
