Flat Colon Polyps and Endoscopic Mucosal Resection | MD ...
The precursor of colon cancer is called a polyp. Many polyps are easy to detect because they are shaped like a mushroom. The flat ones, however, are more deadly and can easily be missed during colonoscopy, especially when the colon is not clean. These subtle flat lesions also require a special technique, called endoscopic mucosal resection, to remove them safely and completely.
