Outgrowths that protrude into the uterus and may cause pain and bleeding or prevent an embryo from implanting.
small growths on the inner colon lining. Certain types of polyps, such as adenomas, may develop into cancer. Other types of polyps have no risk of developing into cancer. Colorectal screening is important to detect polyps and early cancer.
Abnormal growths that can occur in the colon. While polyps themselves are harmless, some types are considered precancerous and can turn into cancer.

Small, non-cancerous growths on the inner colon lining that may develop into cancer. Colon polyps and the early stages of cancer can have no symptoms. Therefore, regular screening is important.
Benign tumors which occur on the ovaries (two small, oval bodies on each side of a woman's uterus where eggs develop and are released at ovulation during a woman's monthly cycle) or in the uterus (the organ in women in which a fertilized egg implants to grow into an embryo and fetus).
