Abstract

Objective: To examine the possible role of adenomatous polyps in colorectal cancer development, this study focused on the relationship of the distribution between adenomatous polyps and cancer in the colorectum. Methods: The distribution of 753 adenomatous polyps was compared with that of 35 colorectal cancer lesions in 510 male patients ranging from 45 to 55 yr of age who underwent a total colonoscopy. Results: The incidence of cancer significantly increased with a distal shift in the colorectal sites in comparison with that of adenomatous polyps (p < 0.02). Conclusion: The different distribution between adenomatous polyps and cancer thus suggested that adenomatous polyps at various colorectal sites appear to have a different malignant potential for cancer development.
