No, no need for it. However, you'll need follow-up screenings for polyps. The cancer begins when precancerous growths called adenomatous polyps form in the tissues of the colon, which makes up the lower part of our digestive system. Polyps can be detected through colon screenings.
Since it is precancerous polyps, there is no need to do chemotherapy. You are suggested to get follow-ups regularly under your doctor's guidance. Regular colonoscopy may be needed every year.
