Immediate diagnosis and treatment are available with colonoscopy for polyps which are considered as precursors of colorectal cancers. Treatment with low complication rates is possible as minimally invasive endoscopic methods are in use. Some polyps that are considered to be difficult to treat endoscopically should be evaluated and identified during colonoscopy, and appropriate treatment method can be selected accordingly. In the treatment of lesions that cannot be removed endoscopically, in the presence of suspected malignancy, surgical procedure in accordance with the oncological principles involving lymph node dissection can be performed laparoscopically with low complication rates.
