Colon polyps are relatively common in our population and, in most cases, are relatively easily found and removed, thereby reducing one's risk of developing colorectal cancer. What are the various types of colon polyps and which polyps have a greater tendency to become malignant? How long does it take a polyp to develop into colon cancer and how often does colonoscopy miss polyps? These are just some of the topics we’ll discuss in today’s podcast. Our guest is John B. Kisiel, M.D., a gastroenterologist at the Mayo Clinic.
