It depends.: Where to go from here depends on the details of your situation, including whether the endoscopist feels that he or she got all of the polyp removed, your family history, your medical history, and your age, among other things. You should make a follow up visit with the doctor to set up whatever follow-up he or she recommends. Good luck.
