How do I prepare for polyp removal?
Before the procedure, you will be asked to follow a special diet or take a laxative to clean your colon. Your specialist will discuss if you need to follow other specifications.
How long do I have to wait to get my results?
The results can take 2 or 3 days to come back, however, if more complex tests are needed you might have to wait up to 7 or 10 days.
Will I need follow-up screenings or additional treatment?
This will depend on the results of the tests.
If they’re benign, probably, you won’t need follow-ups. If they come back as precancerous, you will need screenings every 5 to 10 years.
