    Colon Polyps Directory

    Colon polyps are common intestinal growths. Though a majority of colon polyps are benign, many can become cancerous over time. Risk factors include age, family history of colorectal cancer, race, and more. Oftentimes symptoms are not present; the polyps are found during screening tests such as a colonoscopy. Treatment involves removing polyps during the colonoscopy or via surgery.
