Description

Diminutive polyps found on flexible sigmoidoscopy are predominantly hyperplastic, but it is impossible to rely on endoscopic appearance to make an accurate diagnosis. Colonoscopy, polypectomy, and full pathologic evaluation are recommended for all such polyps. Follow-up care varies depending on the nature of the lesion.
