BetNeen 1 and 2 cm the risk increased to 9 per cent and over 2 cm in diameter there Nas a 28 per cent malignancy rate. Other factors than the size of the adenoma such as adenoma type, location of the adenoma, gross morphological pattern and multiplicity of adenomas might also be predictors of the risk of malignancy. But size has the advantage of being easy to evaluate. Available data alloN us to conclude that the risk of becoming malignant is exceptional in adenomas less than 1 cm in diameter.
