Viral field changes: With 4 polyps one needs to know if there is a familial history of polyposis. In addition, are the polyps adenomatous or inflammatory. Rare for an adenomatous polyp of 1.5 mm to be symptomatic. If not congenital and appearing adenomatous, the mechanism appears to be polyoma virus transfecting mucosal epithelium and then as various lesions appear if a malignancy arises it suppresses the others. ...Read more

Size, pathology: All adenomatous polyps should be removed. If they are too large to remove endoscopically, then surgery is usually warranted. If the polyp is removed completed on colonoscopy, but has a suspicious or worrisome pathology, then surgery is sometimes required to complete the resection.
