[Hyperplastic polyp]

Previous | List | Next

When you see a polyp for the first time, you need to take 1-2 biopsies from it. In the follow-up endoscopy, however, no more biopsy is required for a hyperplatic polyp.

There are some exceptions. Take biopsies in the follow-up endoscopy, if (1) the polyp increased significantly (>30% in diameter), or (2) malignant change is suspected.
