All About Colon Polyps
A colon polyp is a mass of tissue on the inside wall of the colon that protrudes into the colon "tube." Most colon cancers arise from a polyp; however, only a very small percentage of colon polyps become cancer. Removing polyps that can progress to become cancer, reduces the risk of colon cancer by up to 80%.
