Caption: Colon polyp before surgical removal. Image 1 of 2. Endoscopic view of a polyp (right) in the colon (large intestine) prior to being surgically excised. Polyps are benign (non-cancerous) growths that arise from mucous membranes. Although most are harmless, some colon polyps are surgically removed if it is thought that their growth may obstruct the passage of food, or that they could turn cancerous over time. For an image of the polyp after surgery, see C001/8099.
