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 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 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 m tn I was told as long as I got checkups and had them removed I would be fine and have the polyps controlled.
577395 tn?1277401364 Hi....finding multiple polyps in one this age is common and that's why they tell us to start getting scoped at 50, so this is not unusual for your dad. They always biopsy the polyps when removed and unless he's been having bleeding or pain, I feel they'll come back okay. Hepatic Flexure is the area of the colon that lies between the liver and pancreas and that is how it gets it's name.
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.

107693 tn?1252864443 ll be asleep before it even begins. Uterine polyps are fairly common and are easily removed, and again you will be sedated. The ache is so low that I wonder if it's either one of these??? Sounds like a pulled muscle, but you need to get it checked out. Try to relax, and I wish you all the best.
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.

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 He said to see my internist about the rib-cage pain. The pain is much improved in both my abdomen and rib cage, but still there.In 2007, I was also having abdominal pain on my lower right side and my MD order a CAT scan which showed hypo dense lesions on my liver, a nodule on my adrenal gland and dilated pelvic veins. I had a repeat CAT scan in 2008 which showed the same thing. Both times, the gallbladder findings were unremarkable.
Avatar n tn Since Oct of 07 he has had nausea, diarrhea and feels bloated and full and in pain no matter how little or how much he eats.
Avatar f tn I had the colonoscopy as previously had one where polyps were found but they were NAD. I was admitted to hospital 7 months ago with abdominal pain (not severe) loss of appetite and nausea. The loss of appetite has continued since. I have had no weight loss - I eat when its meal times although I am not hungry. Since the colonoscopy I have had terrible bloating.
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 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.
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 m tn I had a sigmoid colon polyp (2-3 mm) that was removed and it turned out adenomatous type. Dr. also found some nodular lesions in the last part of my small intestine (terminal ileum) and they turned out to be benign. I do not have any family history of colon cancer and am 48 yrs of age. What would be my best option? Please advise. Thank you so much.
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.
