I and they performed a Colonoscopy on December 27, 2010... 6 polyps removed and sent to pathology.. have to wait 2 weeks for pathology.I've had moderate pain and diarrhea since. Question is.. why do I have to wait for pathology? from what I've read once they remove polyps there is no need to further test but yet the paper I received from my G.I doctor states repeat test based upon pathology. I really do not want to go thru that test again.. Please help.
My mother in law have colon polyps and they checked it its not cancer, they took some off while they did the exam and told her to come and check it after 2 month, when they check it after 2 month they saw more polyps that grow in the colon this time about 8 mm and the other from before was 3 centimetre and they said they cant take it no more because its keep growing, what do you think the cause for that and why it keep growing and what we can do for that?
I have a j pouch. You'll have to have an ostomy for awhile but its not that bad and all the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and discomfort is more than worth it. Good luck and God bless.
I just had a colonoscopy done today. They removed polyps. What are they and what are the symptoms? Can they cause severe abdominal bloating and pain? Please someone answer these questions.
i feel your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> i have got to get another colon test and i hate being put to sleep, its my thrid one and an very nerves .
unexplained anemia, unexplained blood in the stool, abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, persistent diarrhea, or abnormalities (such as polyps) found on contrast x-rays or inflammatory bowel disease. This procedure is also used in obtaining tissue specimen for biopsy. And most importantly, colonoscopy is advised to everyone, age 50 years old and above, to screen for colorectal cancer.

Constant painful bloating and most recently severe lower back and hip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> that radiates down my legs. Doctors don't seem to take my concerns seriously because of my age. But at the age of 27 this is worrying to me. Should I be worried?
Should I be having more colonoscopies then usual because of them finding polyps? Do I have a high risk of colon cancer because of having these polyps at such a young age?

Hi I am a 44 year old female, with recent bright red blood in my when i wipe after diarrhea. I have a history of colon polyps 1 year ago and my mother has colon ca Diagnosed June 07 with soft tissue mets (specifically 7.3 cm x 5.3 cm X3.5 cm paraspinal muscle met) confirmed with biopsy 9 days ago. Do you think I should seek another colonoscopy soon, I was told last year every 5 years, what are the chances mine is ca?
I mentioned this to my GI specialist about a year ago when it was very tiny and he said not to worry about it and it would go away. It hasn't and it's gotten much much bigger. I do have colitis and lately I have been having some discomfort in my abdomen area. I am really freaked out by this finding and that this polyp may be cancerous. it's also in an area that's quite painful. Has anyone had experience with this?
Don't take my word for it, do your own research and evaluate everything. Stick with it and the polyps should shrink away, the bleeding and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> will stop and you will get your life back. Don't give up. Maria (memyselfusa at yahoo.
I had one done 2 years ago before a hysterectomy and they found 2 benign polyps and removed them (at age 32). I only just though of this yesterday. My Dr. is ready to go forward with surgery to remove my appendix (just in case) and take a look around while he is in there. Im not adverse to surgery but does anyone think I should investigate a possible colon issue first. 33 yr old female - although not physically active, I am not overweight either.
I have a male friend in the US (I live in England) who has had polyps in his colon for many years, and he has them biopsied each year. He has no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, and it is a genetic family problem. Polyps turning to cancer at your age would be highly unusual. I have never had a uterine device, but this could certainly have caused the pain and discharge you are experiencing. Hope you get it sorted out. Liz.
Posted By Charlotte on December 09, 1998 at 21:25:35: Feburary of this year I had an colonscope done because of having an positive hemocult. When I had it done they found several polyps and one polyp that the doctor said and I state "Your lucky you had this done when you did because if you waited a couple of years it would had been cancer." It looked to be about an inch or inch-and half round. Now, I'm just 33 and I do have an great grandfather who died of colon cancer.

Yet in my recent colonoscopy,my GI found 10+ polyps scattered around my traverse colon, sigmoid colon, and rectum. The largest one of size 2.5cm turned out to be cancerous and I had to have a radical emergency surgery to get 10cm of my sigmoid colon & rectum resected. I also did genetic testing which turned out negative. As far as reducing polyps, the only thing I know is to avoid red meat. I'm afraid that there's nothing much you can do with it.
Since Oct of 07 he has had nausea, diarrhea and feels bloated and full and in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> no matter how little or how much he eats.
there is really a lot experience about colon polyps, cancer, colonoscopy and related tests, so there are exact schedules made for each particular bowel disease, stage, age etc. Doctor has first to make a diagnosis, and then he/she will determine the schedule of eventual further colonoscopies or other investigations (if needed).
Hello Sir, there is a chance that it could be a cancerous lesion, but it is not the only lesion possible. Possible colon lesions include polyps, bezoars, and diverticuli. Any of these are possible and if she is young and has no family history of colonic cancer or other cancers, it is likely to be something other than malignancy. Only the pathologist can know for sure, but otherwise there are other lesions which are present that are not cancerous. Thanks!
there's no reason why you can't have two separate conditions causing this- Diverticulitis and Diverticulosis do both explain the fever and chills, and the blood. Colon spasms are absolutely miserable, but you might benefit from treatment using Belladonna extract- talk to your doctor about it. I went through a yearlong period of colon spasms when I was under heavy stress in college, and Belladonna was good for mitigating the symptoms.
I would visit the GI and let him know whats going on. Polyps take a long time to grow and even more to become cancer. Most of the timelines are 10 years, hence why colonoscopies are recommended at 50, because 60 is the age colon cancer becomes an issue. I assume a barium xray is all that would be needed(if that) to see if theres any issues. I wouldnt worry too much about it being cancer. 2 years after a colonoscopy would be extremely unlikely for you to have developed cancer.
I can't be totally sure, but I think it may be mixed in the the faeces... and I was wondering whether this would suggest colonous cancer. there is no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, though i've found I have the constipation/narrow stool symptoms that other web sites suggest. My grandad just died of bowel cancer, so I suppose this sort of thing is in the family? Please help as soon as possible, I need some advice.
I do not know im my grandma ever had colon cancer, but she has had cancer several times, the first time she was diagnosed at 7 months. im scared of polyps. my appitite has decreased and i am tired alot and even get headaches more frequently. about two years ago i did have round worms but i got rid of them, and this is nothing like that. im starting to freak out please help.
If there are a lot of polyps it is impossible to biospy them all, so the doctor will just remove the section with the polyps and biopsy the ones over 1cm. Why polyps form who knows it could be a lot of reason and none at all. I would assume with your hx you have to be scoped yearly? Take care and do as your doctor says!
While checking on the cause of my chronic diarrhea, they did a colonoscopy and found small polyps, which were removed and biopsied and found to be the type of cells that could cause cancer. The diarrhea was found to be caused by something other than the polyps. there were no changes in symptoms at all after the polyps were removed. there was no pain, discomfort, bleeding, or anything else with the polyps, but mine were small.
I am 36 years old. Long history of chronic diarrhea, abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and other IBD type symptoms. Currently being tested to rule out Crohn's. Had colonoscopy a couple days ago, and while my doctor didn't find evidence of Crohn's/IBD, he found two polyps in my left (descending?) colon. He said they were approx the size of the bed of his finger nail...(1 cm?) or so...and he removed them and sent them to pathology.
Constipation, gas and bloating, pressure on my rectum and lower back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> much of the time, forced stools with lower back spasms following. I had a colonoscopy done 6 months ago and everything looked fine. My question is: Could my constipation be the result of nerve damage or hormonal imbalance, and if so, how would I go about determining the problem and a possible treatment? Any help would be appreciated.
