Unlikely: You will require another colonoscopy sooner than normal. A tubulovillous adenoma as you know is benign. No way to remove all at once because new ones can develop at other times. Routine screening is important. I would not be overly concerned with this. Hope this helps.

Unrelated: Tubulovillous adenomatous polyp do not occur in the breast. What was the pathology on the breast tissue?
