Common Questions and Answers about Colon cancer histology


Avatar m tn The pain didn't go away so he went for a colon test and it came back that he had sigmo colon cancer and had a colon resection on 12/26/07 and now is going through CHIMO I have taken him to a cancer hospital in new york and they said the same they said here in Illinois.
1506428 tn?1290117104's the deal...I'm 20 years old and I think I have colon cancer. Now before you roll your eyes and immediately start throwing statistics at me, hear me out. I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease when I was 15 years old. I have been on Remicade for about four years and recently the effects seem to be diminishing.So, I went in for a colonoscopy and upper endoscopy. They found three small polyps in my cecum (1-2mm) and one mid-sized polyp in my mid ascending colon (6-8mm).

Avatar n tn I am told that polyps grow very slowly. No family history of colon cancer, my parents, aunts and uncles have all been screened and are clear. My grandmother did have several polyps removed but not until she was in her 50s or 60s and has never had them reoccur. I don't drink, smoke, eat relatively healthy and am not obese.
Avatar f tn peritoneal seedling throughout its mength.loops of small intestines ,ascending colon,transverce colon and part of decending colon are involved and inseperable.(frozen abdomen and pelvis).now tell me in this situation,what are the chances of chemotherapy?will it works? or how much time she had left coz she had completely blocked her intestines.she is not eating since 20 dayz.she is discharge from hospital and her first chemotherapy is done rightnow. i dun know about chemo drugs details.....
Avatar n tn I am a 64 yo male with no family history of colon cancer. (But my mother had pancreas cancer and I had a melanoma 20 years ago.) A colorectal surgeon performed a colonoscopy and found several adenomatous polyps, two of them large, situated on either side of the colon (exact size or nature not mentioned).
Avatar n tn My brother had colon cancer 5 years ago. He got blocked bowels and went to the emergency room. They found the blockage and operated. They removed about eight inches. They said that the fatty layer kept the cancer from breaking threw the wall. He took no chemo. This November was the fifth year of testing at MD Anderson Houston all looks clear except a very tiny spot on the liver. It showed up active on the pet scan. What do you think about about this after five years?
Avatar n tn before his colon were to be taken out 2 experts should be conclusive regarding the histology of the colon biopsies. it can be difficult to conclusively confirm dysplasia or carcinoma-in-situ in the setting of an inflamed colon. I presume that the shunt you mention is a TIPS which means that the liver has been affected by the PSC. Unfortunately a transplant may be necessary as colon surgery could be prohibitively dangerous with a very high chance of complications.
Avatar f tn If histology will show, that it was a cancer, then you'll need an operation, since some inches of colon has to go out in this case.
Girl I have a HUGE family history of cancer on my dad's side of aunts and cousins of breast/uterine/ovarian/colon and pancreatic while on my mother's side i have mostly breast cancer (neither my mother or father had cancer). I know that with thickened walls that are neither cancer nor precancerous, hormones can be used to fix the thickening.
Avatar n tn bronchoscopy, testicular ultrasound, colonoscopy etc... to detect for these cancers (lung, testicualr, colon cancer) which have traveled to my cervical lymph node. I only have the one enlarged painless cervical lymph node.
Avatar f tn My dad also died of cancer, but his death was much easier to accept. he had been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, had the chemo and I saw him getting worse over a period of a couple of years. with my mom she went from being a healthy (appeared to be) lively active outgoing woman to gone in a matter of 3 months. the last week where she was in a coma after a stroke was far harder to deal with than things with my dad...
107366 tn?1305683975 Mine did through University of Chicago and Avastin was available to me. I know that mine is probably ovca, but the diagnosis of colon cancer opens up more chemo options. Good luck.
Avatar m tn My mum had previously had colon cancer (some years ago) and they could not rule out that this wasn't a recurrence of that, which had spread to the pelvis. Therefore, surgery was deemed the only option (biopsy was ruled out due to the location of the tumours). We asked the Consultant if it was a good thing that there were not many cancer cells, but he said no, it was just one of those things.
Avatar n tn Do you have a family history of ovarian, breast, endometrial, and/or colon cancer? if so , your risk is even higher. You should ask your doctor about getting genetic testing for BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations. That information will give you good statistics on your risks. Regardless of this information, if you decide to get pregnant, after you have completed child bearing, I would recommend that you consider the prophylactic removal of your other ovary.
Avatar f tn Judging from findings on EUS, abdominal computed tomography and chest roentgenography, there were no signs of metastasis in the regional lymph nodes or distant organs. Histology of the biopsy specimens suggested an adenocarcinoma, yielding a diagnosis of polypoid type of early rectal cancer. The depth of mural invasion was estimated to be limited to the submucosa by magnifying endoscopy and EUS. After an injection of saline in the submucosa, the lesion was excised by EMR.
Avatar n tn I have one family member who was my great grandmother on my fathers side who died of colon cancer. I had a flexible sigmoidoscopy done about 6 months ago, and he found nothng. I am kind of leary, however, as I think the doctor didn't do a thourough job with the test. It was done by my general practice doctor, and the test was extremely painful, and it only took 5 minutes. Should I have a repeat test done?
Avatar n tn // IBD Disguises: Diseases That May Mimic Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease are inflammatory conditions of the intestinal tract. Each of these inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) is characterized by certain symptoms.
136849 tn?1327325110 I know no one can tell me how this happened, I know it is due to the clear cell histology, I am just scared, terrified frankly that now that this cancer has shown that it will re-occur with in a 5 year period, will this just keep happening and happening, over and over again? The doctors are saying since I responded so well to the carboplatin/taxotere chemo that I should do the same again.
Avatar n tn My Operation As many of you know, within a very short period of time I was diagnosed with Hepatitis C and then colon cancer. I could not begin treatment for hepatitis until my cancer was taken care of. I just returned home from having an operation to remove a cancerous tumor that was located inside my colon at the Secom. The surgeon also removed several inches of the colon itself and some lymph nodes. This was one operation I would not soon forget.
Avatar f tn Although my doctor says it is extremely rare, I had a friend whose breast cancer metastasized to her colon. I hope everything comes out ok for you. I was also diagnosed in 2003 and have seen you posting on the other BC forum many times. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Avatar f tn From what I've read Crohn's can cause temporary arthritis that goes away as the inflammation in the colon goes away. I guess my question is can I expect this to continue for a while? Am I going to be in pain all the time after I stop taking steroids? I'll be done in 2 weeks. I really just want to know what to expect so I can prepare mentally for it. Thanks!
203342 tn?1328740807 I've heard that there's a higher risk of colon cancer with people who have Crohns. I already have colon cancer in my family. My grandmother had it but she didn't get it until she was in her 70's. I'm only 42! Do you really think mine is agressive? Why do you think that? I almost wish I hadn't had that stupid test yesterday. I've been actually feeling great since my surgery last August. Please say a prayer for me, Lizzie. I don't want to get any worse.
Avatar n tn I am a little nervous about the whole thing though, because my brother had colon cancer at age 38 and my maternal grandmothers and aunts all had it by age 50. I am considering genetic testing (mostly for my kids benefit). I will let you know what my doctors say about endo. Also, I read that endo cannot turn into cancer except very, very rarely.

Avatar n tn My wife had surgery for colon cancer in December 2003. The cancer was located close to the anus. The histology showed that there was no cancer remaining (Dukes A) and there was no post-operative chemotherapy. She had an ileostomy for seven months and a reversal was carried out at the end of June 2004. In mid August, following sever pain, an anal fissure was repaired. For the last two months she has continued a cocktail of analgaesics but still suffers pain and discomfort.
565061 tn?1314244691 AFP can be elevated in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) and in some metastases from colon cancer. Therefore, the ļ¬nding of a mass in the liver with an elevated AFP does not automatically indicate HCC." From AASLD Practice Guidelines for HCC." Your in Lake County? No matter where you are you need to be seeing a hepatologist. No other doctor is qualified to diagnose and manage cirrhosis and HCC. HCC is a very serious illness. It must be managed properly.
173119 tn?1297003336 However, my father died of colon cancer at 59 yrs and my gastro says I am at high risk of my Crohn's turning to cancer because of Dad's colon cancer. Coupled with my recent breast cancer (which is again highly prevalent in the Ashkenazi Jewish population), my gastro is very much aware of my hereditary tendencies and does all he can to mitigate any problems.
Avatar n tn The hard data on the benefits of tea (white, green or black) is so compelling that I have no doubt that drinking it benefits everyone (including you) to some degree in some particular way. What I mean is, you may be free of colon cancer today because of all the tea you've consumed over the years. Perhaps it hasn't impacted your liver histology in a way you can pinpoint and say....Aha! It's the tea!
Avatar n tn Biopsies terminal ileum, right colon and left colon: no significant histologic changes. Biopsies of polyps at 70 and 30cm: adenomatous polyps." My questions: (1)Is "mild edema of lamina propria" normal? A past colonoscopy referred to "mild inflammation of lamina propria - I assume it's the same thing. I'm wondering whether this "mild edema" might explain continuing intermittent bowel symptoms, which include abd.
