Large cervical polyps. View down a vaginal speculum showing a number of large, plum-like polyps covering the cervix, the neck of the womb. The cervix is made accessible through the introduction of a metal speculum into the vagina, a device used to gently part the muscular walls of the vagina. Polyps are benign, often stalk-like growths from the squamous epithelium which covers the cervix. Although polyps are invariably benign (non-cancerous), surgical removal is indicated in the event of any malignant changes in the surrounding epithelium.
