A carcinoma cell cluster is accompanied by a bloody background. B. Carcinoma cells having enlarged nuclei appear to be transitional with normal atrophic cells having small-sized nuclei (arrows). C. The polyp has many atypical glands with intraluminal papillary protrusion of the carcinoma cells. D. The border between the carcinoma cells and normal cells is clearly discernible (arrows).
