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.
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.
The incidence of cancer significantly increased with a distal shift in the colorectal sites in comparison with that of adenomatous polyps (p<0.02).
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.
