Benign polyp?: A rubbery growth could be a cancer but could also be a benign polyp that has not become a cancer yet. At colonoscopy the growth might be able to be removed or might be judges too large to remove safely but pieces (biopsies) will be obtained to tell what it is. The video image is usually very accurate for an experienced endoscopist.
