In brief: Depends

colon polyps looks vastly different, as well as etiology, appearance, causative factor. Nasal polyp is usually caused by allergic etiology due to swelling of the nasal ostial meatus. Colon polyps on the other hand is a growth within the colon, that may look sessile (flat) or pedunculated (extension), or combination of both.
