THE polypi constitute a class of tumors growing from mucous membranes. They are of two kinds, the soft, jelly like polypus, and the fleshy or fibrous polypus.
The Soft Polypus, which grows from the nose, has not much feeling, and is not particularly disposed to bleed.
The Fleshy Polypus is firmer and harder than the preceding, and most generally connects itself with the womb.
Treatment. Both kinds of polypi are either twisted off with a pair of forceps, or strangled by putting a string, called a ligature, around their neck, which will cause them to fall off in a short time.
