In brief: Not common!

Not common, but can have different types of colon polyps.
Most common would be juvenile polyp. But cases with family history of familial polyposis will have higher incidence of adenomatous polyps (tubular adenoma). In addition there are other rare types with various syndromes. For more scientific info visit- http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pmc/articles/pmc2657698/.
