What kind?: Depends on the type of polyp found, their size, family history and pathology result if biopsied. If benign, flat, small, nothing. May need earlier repeat colonoscopy, usually in 3 to 5 years as opposed to 10.

Depends on what type: If you just had a small hyperplastic polyp, there is nothing for you to do but repeat a screening colonoscopy in 10 yrs as per current guideline. If you have large adenoma, a3 to 5 yr follow maybe recommended. Villous adenoma or precancerous one may need resection and f/u in 1 yr, some even earlier depending how big and sucessful the resection was via the scope... Consult doc. Good luck.

Biopsy will tell: When encountered, they should have been biopsied, and it will depend upon the report from pathology as to if benign or concerning as to what next. Need to follow up with GI for report.
