Most colon cancers are thought to arise from adenomatous polyps which over a period of years evolve into true malignancies. Thus, detecting and removing such polyps prior to their progression to frank malignancy should reduce cancer occurrence. Though there are no randomized controlled studies showing that colonoscopy reduces the incidence of colon cancer, strong evidence for the effectiveness of OC in preventing cancer was reported in the National Polyp Study. In this study, 1418 patients were followed for an average of 5.9 years after the removal of one or more adenomas by colonoscopy. Comparing the incidence of CRC in the study patients with rates of CRC in three index groups, there was a 76% to 90% reduction in CRC.
