How are stomach polyps treated?
If necessary, stomach polyps can be removed with the endoscope. During an endoscopy, a biopsy of one or more of the polyps will be taken for examination to make sure that the tissue is not cancerous. If the polyps are large, or look different from the other polyps, they may be removed entirely while the endoscope is in the stomach. If several polyps are found, the doctor may recommend surgery.
In addition, polyps may be a sign of gastritis that may require further diagnosis and treatment.
