Why Is a Polyp Biopsy Performed?

A polyp biopsy is performed for several reasons, including:
Cancer Screening and Diagnosis: To check if a polyp is benign, precancerous, or malignant.
Symptom Investigation: To investigate symptoms such as bleeding, pain, or changes in bowel habits that may be associated with polyps.
Monitoring and Follow-Up: To monitor known polyps over time to see if they have changed in size or appearance.
Guiding Treatment Decisions: To determine the appropriate treatment plan based on the type and nature of the polyp.
