What is a colon polyp?

Nearly all bowel cancers begin as a polyp. A colon polyp is a small clump of cells that forms on the lining of the colon. Most are harmless.

But over time, some polyps can develop into cancer. Generally, the larger the polyp, the greater the risk of cancer.

When polyps are found during a colonoscopy, they are removed and analysed.

You are then advised to have a repeat colonoscopy to monitor and remove further polyps. You can potentially grow new polyps or the previously removed polyps can recur.

We use a recall system to send out reminder letters to our patients to let you know when you are due for a repeat colonoscopy.

Research shows bowel cancer can be successfully treated through early detection.

We encourage you to make your health care a top priority.
