FAQs1. What doctor should I consult?
A surgeon or a gastroenterologist can manage colon polyps. Further references are decided by him as and when required (in the case of a cancer, for example, the service of an Oncologist is required).
2. Do colon polyps recur even after complete removal?
Yes they can.
3. What does the future hold for prevention of colon polyps?
Attempts to develop a radiologic colonoscopic test for screening and surveillance of polyps are going on. Authentic results are awaited.
4. What about genetic counselling?
As already mentioned in the article, colon polyps can run in families. Hence an incident of colon polyps calls in for genetic counselling.
