Invasive cancer arising in a sessile adenoma is, by definition, a level IV lesion (Fig. 17). In sessile and semi-sessile adenomas there will most likely be an invasion into the submucosa of the bowel wall, and the patient will therefore be at higher risk for metastasis compared to early invasive carcinomas arising in pedunculated adenomas [8]. 3 Measuring the Level of Submucosal Invasion Extension into the submucosal layer may be expressed by micrometric measurement of depth and width of 32 S.
