Hello! What would colon palps be?

Hello there! I suppose you meant colon polyps….If so, then a polyp is extra tissue that grows inside your body. Colon polyps grow in the large intestine. The large intestine, also called the colon, is part of our digestive system. It's a long, hollow tube at the end of your digestive tract where your body makes and stores stool.
Most are benign, which means they are not cancer. But over time, some types of polyps can turn into cancer. Usually, polyps that are smaller than a pea aren't harmful. But larger polyps could someday become cancer or may already be cancer. To be safe, doctors remove all polyps and test them. Most small polyps don't cause symptoms but there could be some bleeding from the anus, constipation or diarrhea that lasts more than a week, and blood in the stool.
