Colonic polyps detected in younger patients did not increase the likelihood of finding advanced adenomas, including colorectal cancer, at follow-up colonoscopy, data from a colonoscopy registry showed.
Risk of advanced adenomas at follow-up did not differ significantly in patients younger than 40, 40-49, and 50-59. The risk of metachronous advanced adenomas increased significantly in patients 60 or older. Adjustment for covariates did not change the findings. The findings were presented at the American College of Gastroenterology meeting.
