Common Questions and Answers about Colon polyps and anemia


Avatar n tn On June 9th he had an endoscope and which showed that his stomach from top to bottom is full of polyps. There were sever biopsies performed and they came back non cancerous but the Dr. said that he would not attempt to do surgery on my husband because he would have to remove the whole stomach. What if any other options does he have? Will the polyps eventually develop into cancer?
Avatar f tn 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.

Avatar n tn Do you that you have fibroid polyps in the colon? Or other fibroid tumers elsewhere? Usually if it is polyps, the dr will remove them for testing while he is in the colon.
533880 tn?1237612452 I have a question with all these issues does these things increase my risk of colon or stomach cancer. My grandmother died a month ago due to colon and lover cancer. And my dad has also had a few polyps removed from his colon. What are some things I should be aware of just in case.
Avatar m tn I have had a CTC with all values coming in within the normal range and no anemia detected. I also had a FIT test completed, which, came out abnormal. I have a prep appointment for a colonoscopy coming up the first of January. My physician has a strong suspicion that I am experiencing hemmrhiods. My grandfather had late onset colon cancer in his late 60's, however, he ate a very low fiber diet and smoked everyday. Any thoughts and considerations are greatly appreciated.
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 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 Have 3 large polyps on right side of colon got to have surgery is there any concerns?
Avatar m tn I have of course been reading other causes of anemia like colon cancer and liver cancer and it has terrified me. I am 36 yr old female and also a vegetarian. I recently started taking iron pills and a daliy vitamin. I really dont have any other symptos besides dark circles and I will get cold more than other people around me. Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn He feels that because of the 6 surgeries that my husband has already had for colon cancer, colon perforation and colon obstructions that his intestine is not functioning properly and it could be caused from nerve damage due to the numerous surgeries. The dr. is now trying him on a regement of Florastor and Aligin to replace the good antibotics in his intestine. I ask the dr. also about Familial Polyposis and he said he did not think that was what my husband had.

Avatar n tn Hello I have been having polyps removed since 44 I am now 48 they say there slow growing but seem to be growing faster just had my #3 colonoscopy and they removed mulitply polyps started at 8mm and moving up to two 25 mm sesile polyps that spot was tattooed.. and a 15mm next to the 25 mm and that was two years after my last .. now I will be having colonoscopy every 6months to a year...I thought they where slow growing.mine are coming back with a vengence....
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.
Avatar m tn (anesthesia), then attempt to remove the other 2 polyps he saw, then attempt to look at the rest of the colon and remove any more polyps. I am scared. Is there any other way to remove polyps, for those of us who have long (tortuous) colons? If NOT, this sounds like a "death sentence" - or at least a lifetime of worrying if unreachable polyps will become cancerous. I've read that many people with tortuous colons have never found a doctor who could complete an optical colonoscopy.
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 f tn I also am feeling much better after the initial shock wore off. I spent days scouring the internet and trying to read more about polyps, and of course human nature makes us seem to zero in on the worst case scenario. I do think with a second opinion I will feel much better.
Avatar m tn I was told as long as I got checkups and had them removed I would be fine and have the polyps controlled.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn Low iron could be due to poor intake, loss from body as happens in acidity and GERD, rectal polyps etc, due to improper absorption as in IBS or due to storage disorders. Also you need to get a pheripheral blood smear done to know the RBC count, structure and whether there is cytopenia (general decrease in cell count). The renal function and liver function needs to be checked as also electrophoresis of hemoglobin to know whether there is thalasemia trait or sickle cell anemia.
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 1. 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?
Avatar n tn Well, the doctor called back and said that they found a lot of polyps in his colon and still, a lot of stool so now we are having to go further. The doctor said this could be serious. I just want a second opinion into what could be going on. Thanks for any information!
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 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 think there is a difference between bowel/colon polyps which should be removed, and benign stomach polyps caused by PPIs. I was diagnosed today with a stomach polyp and told it was most likely a result of long term use of a PPI (in this case Pariet). Does anyone know if benign stomach polyps develop into something nastier, grow bigger, can be reduced by diet, or changing PPI med?? Thanks This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
