Polyp is a local prominence (arching) of the mucous membrane. It is a morphological unit describing the appearance, not the histological structure.
- By shape
- According to histological nature
- tumorous (polyposis Adenomas, polyposis lipom);
- non-cancerous (Pseudotumorous);
- inflammatory – non-specific granulation tissue, ulcerated on the surface and re-epithelialized (in the GIT);
- fibrovascular – proliferation of the submucosa (nasal, cervical polyp);
- hyperplastic - proliferation of the mucous membrane with partially preserved glandular structures (gastric and intestinal polyps in chronic inflammations-Ulcerative colitis, etc.).
