Colon polyps are growths on the lining of the human colon and rectum. Most polyps are not cancerous, but some may develop into cancer over time. Removing polyps can help prevent colorectal cancer. Most people with colon polyps don’t have symptoms. Experts aren’t sure what causes colon polyps. Research suggests that certain factors, such as age and family history, can increase the chances of developing colon polyps in a human body.
- Hyperplastic polyps are harmless and don’t develop into cancer.
- Adenomatous polyps are the most common. Although most will never develop into cancer, they do have the potential to become colon cancer.
- Malignant polyps are polyps that are noted under microscopic examination to have cancer cells in them.
