There is insufficient evidence to recommend routine screening for colon polyps. According to the guidelines screening for the colon polyps must be done earlier after the first colon polyps are discovered. Hyperplastic polyps have no malignant tendency and recommendation for the colonoscopy is similar to general population. Adenomatous and serrated polyps have neoplastic nature and must be followed every 3-5 years.
- There is insufficient evidence to recommend routine screening for colon polyps in general population.
- According to guidelines for colonoscopy surveillance after screening and polypectomy by the US Multi-Society Task Force on Colorectal Cancer, recommendations for surveillance and screening are as follows:
|No polyps||Colonoscopy every 10 years|
|Polyps||Hyperplastic polyps||Size <10 mm||Colonoscopy every 10 years|
|Adenomatous polyps||1-2 tubular adenomas <10 mm||Colonoscopy every 5-10 years|
|3-10 tubular adenomas <10 mm||Colonoscopy every 3 years|
|>10 adenomas||Colonoscopy <3 years|
|Tubular adenomas ≥10 mm||Colonoscopy every 3 years|
|Villous adenomas||Colonoscopy every 3 years|
|Adenoma with high grade dysplasia||Colonoscopy every 3 years|
|No adenoma after first low-risk adenoma||Colonoscopy every 10 years|
|No adenoma after first high-risk adenoma||Colonoscopy every 5 years|
|Second adenomatous polyps||Second low-risk adenoma||Colonoscopy after 5 years|
|High-risk adenoma following low-risk adenoma||Colonoscopy every 3 years|
|Low-risk adenoma following high-risk adenoma||Colonoscopy after 5 years|
|Second high-risk adenoma||Colonoscopy every 3 years|
|Serrated polyps||Sessile serrated polyp(s) <10 mm with no dysplasia||Colonoscopy every 5 years|
|Sessile serrated polyp(s) ≥10 mm||Colonoscopy every 3 years|
|Sessile serrated polyp with dysplasia||Colonoscopy every 3 years|
|Traditional serrated adenoma||Colonoscopy every 3 years|
|Serrated polyposis syndrome||Colonoscopy every year|
