Polyps are benign usually. Sessile polyps do not have a stalk. These have risk factor of converting in cancer. Biopsy will tell if any of them had any change from benign to cancer. You would need periodic colonoscopy to look for new polyps.
If your ulcerative colitis has been diagnosed for more than 10 years; removal of colon may be advised as this predisposes for rectum and colon cancer.
