In brief: Not typically

On occasion, polyps may infarct, twist on their stalk, bleed, or secrete (villous tumors of the rectum) with resulting "diarrhea.
" however, most polyps & colon cancers are identified (hopefully) before symptoms develop. Early detection at a smaller polyp size means higher cure rates, lower risk of malignant transformation or invasion, & improved survival before cancer develops. Get a colonoscopy!
