Colorectal polyps, malignant polyps, and genetic pathways in colorectal cancer development

Colorectal polyps, malignant polyps, and genetic pathways in colorectal cancer development

Let's dip our toes into the topic of colorectal cancer by taking a look at different types of colorectal polyps. This includes neoplastic and non-neoplastic types, as well as what to do with malignant polyps (I'm looking at you Haggitt and Kikuchi classification).Next we take a dive into genetic pathways in colorectal cancer. This includes the CIN, serrated and MSI pathways. This episode gives us all the basics we need before heading into genetic syndromes in colorectal cancer next week.DisclaimerThe information in this podcast is intended as a revision aid for the purposes of the General Surgery Fellowship Exam.This information is not to be considered to include any recommendations or medical advice by the author or publisher or any other person.
