Abstract:

This paper highlights the potential importance of family history as an independent risk factor in those with a personal history of adenomas. It also raises important questions for future study about maternal versus paternal risk in CRC. However, we should be cautious about making changes to practice based on these data alone. In the future, such data could be used to generate individualized recommendations for post-polypectomy surveillance to ensure that we deliver the right care to the right patient at the right time.
