Different things: Stomach polyps are rarely precancerous and are seen most commonly in patient who take acid blocking meds regularly. Colon polyps are of different type but most are genetic mutations which can progress over time into cancers. Colon poylps should be removed. Stomach polyps should be biopsied to confirm their type.
