How long does it take for colon polyps to grow

Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for colon polyps to grow


I would visit the GI and let him know whats going on. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>polyp</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> and even more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> 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.
1. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>polyp</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>grow</span> and turn cancerous? 2. Is one course of action to get annual colonoscopies and remove any polyps before they turn cancerous? I have no problem doing this but wanted to get your opinion. 3. Is surgery a good option for me? My doctor and I discussed laprascopic surgery in that area of the colon where the polyps seem to be developing. We would do that if there was another polyp occurence. What do you think? 4.
I've read all the posts up to 'last year' then I realized that it might just be easier <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> 'ask this' then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> search <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>....i'm one of those gals that 'wants <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> know NOW', sorry. My surgery is an 'outpatient' one at a local hospital, they said i'd be home by late afternoon at the latest (providing there's no 'issues') but i'd be 'out of pocket/recovering' for at least 3-4 days....NOT WEEKS....are they wrong with that diagnosis?
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is a genetic test. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is $4000 so insurance <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> pay <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> it.They will if you are at high risk. Your GYN would know about it. If you have BRCA 1 or 2 you have decisions to make. They say with BRCA 1 I have a 40% of Ovarian Cancer and a 87% of Breast Cancer. I am also at a higher rate for colorectal cancer. So I have to be monitored for all these cancers. Those statistics are a bit misleading. They pushed for me to have both breasts removed to keep from getting Breast Cancer.
I must admit, the raw diet did work <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me, but the process was extreme and I wasn’t able <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> maintain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> seems like the healing that takes place in the colon, which took place within a week, weakened all of the other areas of the body. I slept really well, and woke up breathing better than I ever had. I was told that eventually my body would begin to strengthen again everywhere. I felt too weak, too tired and questioned the long term effects of the 80/10/10 diet.
I just want to be safe and see if I have any issues. Also, if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>polyp</span>s were present, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> do they usually <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> develop into a malignancy, if ever? Just looking for thoughts I know there cannot be any sure answer until an exam...however I am told I do not have an "emergency" so I feel like life is on hold (not socially drinking or anything) until June 14th.
for the last 10 yrs my doctors have kept me cancer free, recently i saw a genetic doctor and she says i have been very lucky so far, i have attenuated fap and it is recommended that i have surgery to remove my entire colon.
it is called Latero-Flora (800) 736-1991. I only took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 3 weeks and only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> occasionally just because I want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>. I have a hiatel hernia also all my life and I am so tired of sleeping at an agle and urping a very small meal all the time. I have heard about a new prosedure where they tie 2 pieces of stomach around the esophages. I am concered I will not be able of throw up or parachute jump etc. Any information or a site I could read about it would be appreciated.
I did not have these issues before tx, the odds that I developed all these things while on tx 'naturally' are pretty small, yet still I get all negative replies when I suggest that (to a Dr.) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is the risk we all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> upon treating, we need <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be there <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> anyone that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> get the down side of these risk post.
Moreover, the proportion of subjects undergoing procedures and their mean doses varied according to age, sex, and city. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> example, approximately 50% of adults aged 18 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> 34 years underwent a medical imaging procedure requiring radiation, whereas 86% of adults 60 to 64 years of age were sent for similar testing. Women also underwent imaging procedures significantly more often than men.
Why do so many men refuse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get medical care <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> their health issues? I am so frustrated. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> many years my husband, Mark, has suffered from a bloated gut, pain, and changes in his bowel habits. I've never been able to get him to look into this appropriately. Well now he has an umbilical hernia and I went to the doctor with him yesterday. I managed to get the doctor to order up quite a number of blood tests, he is going for ultrasounds and will be referred to a gastroenteroligist.
Doctors may prescribe antibiotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 10 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> 12 days, and if that doesn’t work, as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> rarely <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span>, they may prescribe a different antibiotic for anywhere to 4 to 6 weeks, which is often effective. Sometimes it takes months and even a year of antibiotics to effect a cure. Steroid nasal sprays can also be prescribed, but the medical community is unsure of the possible side-effects of long-term use of steroid nasal sprays.
I said - h--, I know what is wrong with me, all I need to do is pray, talk to my family and find out what the heck is going on with me. they keep adding more s--- <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the pile. Sorry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> rambling. First time. anxious <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> find out mainly about the endometrial stuff going on.
Mine is little different because where ever I am at this smell stays in, my room , at work and in my car.. and the smell changes all the time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> depends what I eat. I also get thursty If I dont drink water. I start to get a dry throat and mouth... If i drink anything else that is not water my breath gets worse.. please help!
She said she was stretching and got the pain which made her lay down real fast because it hurt so bad. She is famous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> not going pee when she has <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> she just holds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> as she can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the point were she almost pees her pants so I am wondering if it is a urinary tract infection. If we find something out from the doctor we will let everyone know but from what I have read on other posts it doesn't sound like the doctors know.
I'm waiting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> GI <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> call back, but wondering if having the colonscopy 2 years ago is good. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for rectal/anal/colon cancer to grow? I understand it's a slow growing cancer, but should I be concerned that this could be cancer? I realize that you can't tell me for certain, and I am following up with my GI doctor. Just wondering if the likely hood is high for a cancer given that I had a normal colonoscopy 2 years ago?
I have NO peristalic action in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>colon</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is completely and totally gone due <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> laxative abuse over many ,many years. I am told that I will have to have my entire colon removed. I am looking forward to this because I am suffering greatly. My doc said that I will most likely have my small intestine hooked up to my anus. I know I'll have to wear a colostomy bag until the incision heals. however, what is the percentage of possibility that I'll have to wear a bag permenately?
I also had a suction tube <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> almost a week and was soooo scared <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> let them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> out... ( if you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have that you make sure they empty that suction bottle often if it gets full it is nooooootttttt fun... throwning up and sneezing hurts like a ... well it hurts lol.... )this is the thing.. i had never had anything wrong with me... so i was scared of everything... turns out im alittle tougher then i thought and know i could do it again if i had to...
I want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> thank you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> getting back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> me. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is nice <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have some support out there. I went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> see a different doctor yesterdays because the ones I have seen are getting no where and since the last distention was continuous for 2 days and no help from those doctors I wanted to go somewhere to see someone who would care. She was in the room with me for one and a half hours. I have never had a doctor sit that long with me ever and I have seen a lot of them over the years.
I also see the antibiotic-induced dysbiosis in babies and infants as the main cause of their frequent infections, glue ear and greatly contributing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> cot death. While <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be uncommon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> children <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have more than one or two infections a year, now more than six is the norm. In the 1940's Candida was found in only three per cent of autopsies, now the figure is nearer thirty per cent.
it started about 3 years ago. I couldn't get up in the morning because of pain in all my joints. I couldn't sleep at night and became very depressed, which made things worse. I went through several blood tests and cat scans, nothing showed. My doctor gave me some samples of Cymbalta that worked wonders but by the end of the day I felt like my legs and arms were being pulled off!! My family doctor then sent me to a Rheumatoid specialist and he diagnosed me with fibromyalgia.
There are ranges, and if your range has changed noticeably, that shows you are out of the range <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> you are supposed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be.. or you previously were. ESPECIALLY when <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> comes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> thyroid issues. Next time you have thyroid tests done, check for tsh, free t4, free t3, hashimoto's antibodies, and grave's antibodies. If you're on thyroid medication, you need to be seeing an endocrinologist. Well, okay.
When I had no sedation for colonoscopy they could not finish because it hurt quite a bit when they had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> maneuver around turns. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> endoscopy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was unpleasant but I was able <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> do <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> did hurt some. So depends on your pain tolerance. I was gripping the side of the bed praying for it to end soon. I was completely fine afterward.
for this test they would have him eat food which has something in it they can see on x-ray, then they watch the food digest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> measure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> takes. Upper GI cannot accomplish this. From the symptoms you describe, Gastroparesis sounds like a very real possibility. There is one other thing that may be a possibility, which happened to my little cousin. He went through the same symptoms, choking and then vomiting. They couldn't figure out what it was. it turns out he has asthma.
I must agree that they probably rush thru--if the meds weren't confusing me, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> took about 15-20 minutes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go thru my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>colon</span>. No hand holding this time--I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> grip the side rails to keep from doing more than moaning. I kept doing calm breathing to help myself relax, but little did I know they probably were giving me paralyzing drugs--I am so glad a post mentioned this, because I've been in constant muscle pain since they released me.
