De novo” carcinoma may represent an early cancer that has destroyed a small adenoma [58]. Nevertheless, some studies support the view that the “de novo” cancer and classical cancer represent divergent evolutionary pathways. “De novo” carcinoma shows a non-polypoid, superficially spreading, growth pattern, and a more aggressive course [7]. Morphological features that determine the malignant potential of an adenoma are size, growth pattern, and grade of dysplasia [7]. Carcinomas are more likely to arise in larger adenomas than smaller ones.

Malignant adenomas represent an early form of colorectal carcinoma. Approximately 42 to 85% of early colorectal cancers are pedunculated, and 15–58% are sessile [62,63]. Carcinomas arising from pedunculated adenomas cause the biggest clinical questions with regard to further management. Various opinions exist for managing patients after endoscopic removal of malignant polyps. Some of these lesions require further therapy, others do not. One possibility is that all patients with malignant polyps should undergo standard resection [64]; another opinion is that a conservative approach should be maintained in the absence of cancer at the resection line [65].
