Caption: Tubular colon polyp, light micrograph. This specimen shows tissue from a tubular adenoma. Tubular adenomas make up around 80 percent of all colon polyps. They are composed of round or oval shaped glands. Tubular adenomas are generally small and show low-grade dysplasia. This specimen shows cell nuclei that are slightly enlarged, elongated, and hyperchromatic but are still uniform and maintain their polarity. There is nuclear overcrowding and pseudostratification. Nucleoli are not prominent. Mature goblet cells are reduced in number. Colon polyps can turn cancerous. Haematoxylin and eosin stain.
