Treatment for polyps

How are polyps treated? 

The doctor will remove the polyp. Sometimes, the doctor takes it out during sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy. Or the doctor may decide to operate through the abdomen. The polyp is then tested for cancer.
If you've had polyps, the doctor may want you to get tested regularly in the future.
