Endoscopy Video of Polyps of the Colon

Colonoscopy is the primary screening test. All polyps
identified at colonoscopy are removed by colonoscopic
polypectomy. Endoscopic mucosal resection is required for
deeply penetrating noncancerous polyps. Colonoscopy is
repeated every ten years if the index colonoscopy revealed
no lesions, but is repeated more frequently if adenomatous
polyps were identified at this colonoscopy due to an
increased risk of subsequent polyps or colon cancer.
Flexible sigmoidoscopy every few years with annual fecal
occult blood testing is a significantly less sensitive
screening protocol.
