Types of Colon Polyps
Polyps are classified as either non-neoplastic (benign) or neoplastic. 90% of all mucosal polyps detected in the large bowel are non-neoplastic polyps. These are also called Nonadenomatous polyps. These benign polyps are subcategorised into hyperplastic, inflammatory, lymphoid, and juvenile polyps. Juvenile polyps or hamartomatous polyps usually develop in the rectum of children younger than 5 years of age.
