Anatomy Location Adenoma-Carcinoma Sequence Larger adenomas harbor cancer more often Residual benign tissue found in most cancer specimens Benign polyps have been observed to become cancer Adenomas occur more frequently in cancer patients Adenoma patients have increased lifetime risk of dev. cancer Removal of polyps decreases risk Populations with cancer have high prevalence of polyps FAP 100% cancer Peak incidence of adenomas is 50; peak incidence of cancer is 60 suggesting 10-year time span 125

Polyps Morphology o Tubular, villous, tubulovillous Risk of malignancy; 5% - tubular, 22% - tubulovillous, 40% - villous o Pedunculated, flat (sessile) Sessile polyp with cancer has 10% chance of lymph node metastasis Size o o o o 0.6 – 1.5 cm = 2% chance of cancer 1.6 to 2.5 = 19% chance of cancer 2.6 to 3.5 = 43% chance of cancer >3.5 cm = 76% chance of cancer Hyperplastic polyps o Most common o 90% are less than 3mm o Considered to have no malignant potential o Adenomatous changes have been found so polyps should be excised Haggitts: Applies only to pedunculated polyps Level 0 – in situ Level 1 – head of polyp Level 2 – neck Level 3 – stalk Level 4 – submucosa Any sessile polyp is Level 4 Excision of Level 1-3 with 2mm margin and NO poor prognostic indicator is sufficient treatment Familial Adenomatous Polyposis Autosomal dominant Defect in APC gene Hundreds to thousands of polyps 100% cancer conversion rate – avg age 42 Colectomies usually deferred until adulthood Colectomy with IRA or RPC with lifelong rectal/pouch surveillance Phenotypic variants o Gardners, Turcots, attenuated 126
