Avatar f tn Familial Adenomatous Polyposis is an hereditary colon disease. It usually presents with polyps in the colon starting at the age of 10, and depending on the type of FAP the polyps do turn cancerous either in the 30's or late 40's. It's extremely rare to develop colon cancer at your age even when this disease is in the family. The three of you need to meet with a Gastroenterologist to determine if this is what is in your family.
Avatar n tn Hi, you did not mention the diameter of your polyps. Small polyps can be missed in the first colonoscopy. Also, it depends on whether you've been eating healthy (red meat and low vitamin D speed the growth). Finally, you might ask your doctor to do a genetic testing if they keep growing in large numbers. You also didn't mention where the polyps were found.

Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar m tn Hi......having this many polyps at such a young age is typically a symptom of FAP (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis) or AFAP. This is normally an hereditary colon disease but it can happen spontaneously. FAP normally shows up with many polyps in the colon by puberty but it can be up until 40. AFAP is the "attenuated" form where you develop fewer polyps at a slower rate.
Avatar m tn ve had two colonscopies since age 50, my first colonoscopy found a pre-cancerous polyp (had a more dangerous figure, I was told) along with other benign polyps that was which was removed (had no side effects after) I did a follow up colonscopy the year after and another pre-cancerous polyp (except to a lesser degree) was found and removed along with other benign polyps around the same area, the 2nd colonoscopy from a different surgeon I had a lot of stomach pain after.
Avatar n tn Hi, I don't want to worry you, but do you have a history of colon cancer in your family? I ask this because we do, and the first symptom were mutliple polyps in the colon. BUT with our disease the polyps don't appear until around age 10 and through puberty. Polyps always start out benign and can, not always, turn malignant. The disease in our family is FAP, and my children were being scoped yearly for this. They were found in both my sons at ages 12 & 16, and my grandson @ 10.
Avatar n tn I have a half brother that died from colon cancer. My family has a history of polyps, thus I had my first colonoscopy at 37 (2 polyps) then at 46 (2 polyps) All benign thankfully. I've had complete annual physicals for the past 5 years and all good thankfully. I am due for a colonoscopy and am stressing about more polyps. Also have anxiety and that's flaring up because of the colonoscopy. Should I be concerned? Thank you!
Avatar f tn Have 3 large polyps on right side of colon got to have surgery is there any concerns?
Avatar n tn Having had a serrated polyp removed approx three years ago and being a breast cancer survivor......can you enlighten me as to future reoccurrence of these polyps? I understand that they are usually right sided and "once again" .... I'm occasionally experiencing discomfort in that area. Are there any other symptoms? You were very helpful to me in the past and I truly appreciate having you there.
Avatar f tn do all polyps turn into cancer? and are there different types of colon polyps?
Avatar n tn Polyps are very common in people over 50 and should be removed as they are found. In AFP polyps can develop very quickly, keep going for your scans. When polyps are caught early they are very rarely cancerous and can be removed. AFP is not always hereditary.
Avatar n tn removed 5 polyps, one which was abnormally large. They were sent for bioyopsy. What kind of risk am I for colon cancer? I have severe constipation, bleeding rectally and in stools, bloating most of the time, extremely gasy, and suffer from acid reflux.
Avatar n tn a new study shows that eating three servings of fish per week appears to cut the risk of developing colon polyps that could lead to cancer. Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health and Vanderbilt University in Tennessee surveyed more than 5,300 individuals about their eating habits. All of those surveyed also had colonoscopies.
1506428 tn?1290113504 They found three small polyps in my cecum (1-2mm) and one mid-sized polyp in my mid ascending colon (6-8mm). Also, there were large discontinuous areas of inflammation in my ascending and descending colon with large amounts of adherent mucus. They removed all of the polyps and took tissue samples for histology and virology (they are testing for C.
Avatar n tn Why polyps have been grown so fast in my colon, particularly why the polyps found in the last two years all had moderate dysplasia? Does it mean that there are some demons in my digest system or in my body that have been making these pre-cancerous conditions in my colon? 2. Do I need do some further exam, such as CT, ultrasound scans or CA19-9, CEA blood tests to exlude some potential bad causes in my digest sysytem or other related part of my body?
974371 tn?1424653129 More to help other readers than to provide an answer: you have typo "rumors" twice, which I concluded was intended to be "tumors". I have frequent colonoscopies due to a high production of polyps - this began at about the age of 60. In fact I had at least three colonoscopies in one year to remove upper polyps (or one large polyp) and the doctor needed to take care not to break through the colon wall (best I can remember as to why he didn't do it on one surgery).
Avatar f tn I was as well found with cancerous colon polyps. They recommend at least 3-5 year check up on sometimes the size of the polyp. They don't want to check on colon polyps every year unless needed because when someone gets an endoscopy or colonoscopy they fill your stomach with air which give you a hernia until you release the air.
Avatar n tn I had my colonoscopy today and he said he found 2 polyps in the sigmoid colon and biopsy a thickened fold in the sigmoid colon. Also said I have Diverticulosis of the sigmoid colon. Does anyone know what this means?
Avatar f tn Only my grandma, nobody else even polyps. My parents who are over 50 both got colonoscapes, neither one of them had any polyps. Diet. Colon cancer and rectal cancer may be associated with a diet low in fiber and high in fat and calories: Probably A sedentary lifestyle: Yeah, but do try to get at least a little bit of exercise each day. Diabetes: Nope Obesity: I'm only 135 pounds Smoking. I don't smoke Alcohol: I don't drink Growth hormone disorder: I don't think so.

Avatar f tn My husbands half sister recently had most of her stomach removed due to polyps in the lining of the stomach.She was told this is hereditory.My husband can only eat certain foods or he gets nausea.Could there be a connection? What tests should he have and can someone tell me the name of this condition?
107693 tn?1252864443 My question is can having colon polyps and divirticulosis cause a high blood cell count? I had this in May and June but july was 9.6 which is considered in range.
Avatar f tn ) While waiting for the biopsy results I researched flat polyps and learned that there are special procedures for removing large flat colon polyps. One such procedure is called endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). I'm wondering if you had this procedure; I think it would be rare to get bleeding with it if the physician is highly skilled. It seems to be done only at large hospital centers.
Avatar f tn Hello, Some of the polyps are cancerous. These include adenomatous polyps and familial adenomatous polyposis. In these, after removal, it is recomenneded to get check colonoscopy done after 1-3 years. So you can get it done after 1 year. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
