I had three polyps removed during my last colonoscopy. I had a colonoscopy 3 years prior and no polyps were seen at that time. My age places me in the segment of the population where polyps are more likely to form. Two of my polyps were of the adenomatous type. My GI said that it is now necessary to have a colonoscopy at least every 3 years if not sooner. I am not really worried about
them finding a pre-cancerous type polyp. I just know now I must be vigilant about
getting my colonoscopies. There is some good info about
adenomatous polyps here: http://www.medicinenet.com/colon_polyps/article.htm
