1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

Risk can depend family history of polyps, cancer, number, size, and cell type of polyps, presence or absence of inflammatory bowel disease.
If present, more frequent colonoscopies indicated. Low fat, hi fiber diet, containing low or no fat dairy, lots of fruit, vegs, legumes, whole grains may help. Supplements preventiodon't help as much. Talk to md ifif Aspirin or NSAID prevention is indicated 4u.
