I have heard doctors refer to some polyps as "precancerous."  I believe there are polyps that are benign.  Do you have any family history of colon cancer?

Polyps are not directly caused by any food you eat. However, it helps to reduce red meat, increase fibre and eat more fruits, veggies and of course, the most wonderful thing u can do to ur body - regular exercise!!!

Most polyps are benign. Most of them. No worries. Get a colonoscopy done. All polyps are removed during colonoscopy. If they remain there, they MAY turn cancerous. So the ONLY solution here is to get a colonoscopy done. Which is not so hard at all considering how serious cancer can be. Let me assure you, you have no reason to believe you have cancer unless the doctor shows you the proof on the LCD screen during ur colonoscopy! Cheers man. You're fine.
