A 53-year-old male presenting with a 3-month history of intermittent mild rectal bleeding was found,on double contrast barium enema,to have a large polyp on a long stalk in the sigmoid colon. Large bowel endoscopy confirmed the presence of a 2 cm pedunculated polyp which was removed using a diathermic snare,with slight bleeding following the procedure that did not require endoscopic haemostasis
