Colon Polyps

Polyps are abnormal growths rising from the lining of the large intestine (also called the colon) and protruding into the intestinal canal. Some polyps are flat, while others have a stalk. Colonoscopies are performed to identify and quite often remove polyps before they develop into cancers or grow to a size to large to be removed during a scope.
