Follow-up colonoscopy for patients with a history of polyps

If precancerous polyps are identified, a follow-up (repeat) colonoscopy should be performed. Your doctor will tell you when you need another colonoscopy, usually in three-five years. Except in specific cases, a repeat colonoscopy in less than 3 years is not appropriate.

About this measure

For patients who returned for a follow-up (repeat) colonoscopy after colon polyp removal, this measure shows the percentage of patients who received a follow-up (repeat) colonoscopy at least three years following their previous colonoscopy.

For this measure, a higher number is better.
