Gender disparities in colorectal polyps

Keywords: gender disparities, colorectal polyps, colorectal cancer, colonoscopy, neoplasm.


Objective. The main objective of the research is the pathohistological consequences of colorectal adenomatosis polyps and their gender-based assessment. Gender and its connection with advanced colorectal displasia are the focus of the research study.

Materials and methods. A retrospective analysis was conducted 100 patients. The age group of the patients in the research study mainly encompassed 19 to 65 aged patients. During the medical procedure, the gender distribution of the cases was determined as 60 males and 40 females respectively.

Results. There is strong evidence for an association between gender and the risk of advanced colorectal neoplasia. The findings regarding the positive interrelation for gender and advanced colorectal neoplasia are consistent with other large colonoscopy-based studies.

Conclusions. As a result of the study, we would like to emphasize that colorectal polyps are more common in men compared to in women
