Means taken care: First you have to wait for biopsy repot , and to make sure polyp did not have cancer cells in it if you have polyps 3 years ago and again now means you need much closer follow up than 3 yeas, if some family members also have polyps then you all need genetic counseling and testing.

He will also discuss with you regarding next surveillance colonoscopy and likely the pathology of your polyps (benign or cancerous).
