Examining more than 5,000 reports a research team finds that individuals with both conventional adenomas as well as a subset of lesions known as serrated polyps may be at higher risk for developing colorectal cancer or high-risk adenomas that can lead to colorectal cancer, than those who have serrated polyps or high-risk adenomas alone. Individuals with both serrated polyps and high-risk adenomas may therefore benefit from closer surveillance. (Mehr in: Cancer News — ScienceDaily)
