What is colonic polyp?

Colonic polyps are benign growths that appear on the inner lining of your large intestine. They have a small chance of turning malignant, or cancerous, over the next 5-15 years, hence require monitoring by a doctor.

Symptoms of colonic polyp

Questions your doctor may ask to check for colonic polyp

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose colonic polyp

  • Have you ever had a positive stool occult blood test?

Treatment for colonic polyp

Although polyps do not usually cause symptoms, your doctor may recommend regular screening tests such as a colonoscopy, where a tube is passed through your anus to detect changes or abnormalities in your large intestine.
