974371 tn?1424653129 Have a friend that is about 82. He had surgery fop or colon cancer about two years ago. He has been on some type of Chemo and oral meds since. Was told on one CAT scan, it was stable. Last CAT scan showed rumors had gotten bigger. I don't have many details. The doctor has stopped the Chemo and Cancer meds. Said he discussed it with some board and no other treatment suggested. I find this hard to believe! Can't they do surgery again to remove the rumors?
Avatar m tn I heard it was uncommon but the surgeon said sometimes they may be missed the first time around. Do I have higher risks of developing colon cancer? 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 Hi.....I'm glad your cancer was caught early enough for treatment, and polyps are common after 50 and that's why they want us to start having our scopes starting at 50. Polyps are removed during the Colonoscopy and your's was caught early and that's why we have the scopes, to catch these things before they become serious. Food is usually the culprit with gas, so think if you've been eating something out of the ordinary and eliminate it to see if things improve.
1506428 tn?1290113504 He said that because of the severity of the inflammation I was more susceptible to developing polyps...and therefore colon cancer. However, like you said, he believes that if we stay on top the disease and schedule more frequent scopes we should be able to catch anything that could possibly turn into anything more serious. I am meeting with him again in mid Dec. to discuss future treatment options, but for right now I'm on prednisone (ewww) and a PPI.

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 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?
577395 tn?1277401364 1) the doctor is confident that the polyp was removed completely, 2) the pathologist does not see any cancer at the margin of the polyp that was attached to the colon (which would suggest that cancer was left behind), and 3) the cancer is histologically (under the microscope) "less aggressive" looking. Your dad's risk of colon cancer is approximately double the general population once an adenomatous polyp is found.
Avatar f tn It can be a tricky business removing polyps in the ascending colon. There is no reason to panic. Colon cancer is very slow growing. In my opinion another colonoscopy in three months won't reveal much. Perhaps biopsies can be taken, but that still leaves unanswered questions. The one sure solution is surgery, and I wouldn't settle for anything less than the most experienced specialist in your area.
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 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 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?
225036 tn?1294509400 My grandma and dad have a history of polyps and my grandma had to have 1ft of her colon removed. Do I have a higher chance of having cancer with family history of polyps? My mom also has diverticulosis (sp). Any advice or answers would be great. By the way, I am 35 years old. Thanks in advance for you help.
Avatar m tn At your age, I seriously doubt you have cancer and this would have shown up for sure in your colonoscopy. There are other causes for bleeding, and I would get a second opinion on this. I don't feel your current GI doctor is doing you any good, this is creating a lot of worry with you, and you don't deserve to not have answers. Get a second opinion, it can make a world or difference! I wish you all the best and take care.
Avatar f tn This is still young for colon cancer...how old is your mom?
Avatar f tn do all polyps turn into cancer? and are there different types of colon polyps?
Avatar n tn I had a screening colonoscopy in Aug and to confirm a resected polyp was complete an EUS was done in Nov. Resected polyp OK but "multiple 5mm polyps were noted throughout the colon". How unusual is this? Only a couple in Aug and then many in Nov!!
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 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 f tn Do I have reason to be worried? Could there be polyps that have now turned into cancer that may have been caught earlier? If he did have colon cancer would there be some symptoms?
Avatar m tn But as a side finding the doctor found two (6mm and 7mm) sessile serrated polyps in my transverse colon. I am terrified. Does this put at super high risk of colon cancer since I am so young and there were two? She said I should come back in 3 years for another colonoscopy, but I am concerned that I should come back sooner. My paternal grandmother had colon cancer in her 70s and had some of her colon removed and then lived to 86.
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 n tn 7 years ago my husband was diagnoised with colon cancer, because of complications he has undergone 6 different surgeries and now has only his small intestine left. 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.
Avatar f tn Through colonoscopy Doctor can examine your colon to identify the polyps which are lead to colon cancer. All polyps are not cause colon cancer and if he find any polyps that cause cancer they can be removed.
Avatar f tn m suppose to have surgery and I was wondering how long do it take it to turn into cancer.
