hyperplastic polyp

[hi-per-PLAS-tick pa-lip] a type of growth on the inner lining of the colon or rectum that is unlikely to become cancer. Some doctors think that certain hyperplastic polyps can become pre-cancerous, or may mean a risk of developing adenomatous polyps and cancer later, especially if the polyps are in the ascending colon. See also adenomatous polyp, ascending colon, polyp.
