Potentially Yes: But that depends upon your family history, the nature of the polyps and the frequency with which you will be followed. You need to discuss this with the gastroenterologist who did the endoscopy and ask for a detailed explanation. Make a list of all the questions that occur to you before you and insists on answers you understand. Sometimes we speak doctorese.

If the polyps were: Benign and not precancerous, no. If you were having symptoms that prompted these studies, i would confer with your GI specialist what further studies should be done.
