Question about biopsy result

Postby shy » Wed Oct 10, 2018 12:21 pm

Hi, I'm 29 and I did an colonoscopy last month and removed a small polyp. I just received the biopsy results showing it's a benign mucosal polyp and the nurse told me i don't need a follow up, and i also don't need to repeat the colonoscopy in the future. I try to understand this type of polyp better(I know there are Inflammatory, hyperplastic and Adenomatous), but i cannot find any information related with the "mucosal polyp", which confused me a lot. I wonder if anyone here can provide some knowledge about this type of polyp and does it has any chance to become cancer? Thanks a lot!
