Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
The chance of this being cancer is very less.
Less than 10 percent.
Even if there is cancer found in the polyp there is a great possibility that it will either be a precancer, or carcinoma in situ or microinvasive cancer in which case usually only removal of the polyp is all that we do.
So I would not worry too much if I were you.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Do rate me for my services when you are done.
I would also like to add that the size of the polyp is also something that matters a lot.
Most polyps (approximately 90%) are small, usually less than 1 cm in diameter, and have a small potential for malignancy. The remaining 10% of adenomas are larger than 1 cm and approach a 10% chance of containing invasive cancer
