Common Questions and Answers about Colon polyps 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 n tn i've rescheduled my surgery a few times, but i either lost insurance or found out i was pregnant. i'm getting ready to have my last baby at the end of the month c-section so as soon as i have him i'm going to schedule the surgery, but i'm afraid that it may be worse than it as 4..4 1/2 years ago.
Avatar n tn 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. Sigmoid colon polyps are more likely associated with nutrition status, whereas ascending colon polyps are more likely to be genetic. Take care & good luck!
1141557 tn?1261032096 I just had a colonoscopy done today. They removed polyps. What are they and what are the symptoms? Can they cause severe abdominal bloating and pain? Please someone answer these questions.
Avatar m tn Do all polyps in the colon have to be removed? Had procedure and was told had over 30 sissel type polyps. So was wondering how they could take all of them out.
Avatar n tn I had a colonoscopy (my second) two dys ago and neither was able to be completed because of a tortuous colon. My Dr. now suggests a barium enema. Can they see poylps in the colon using the barium? It was very painful even with sedation and I doubt I'll have another one.
Avatar m tn However, the prep was bad, so the doctor only was able to examine only 75% of the colon but did get to the end of the colon. He said - no large polyps were found, no cancers; but that I need to come back in 1 year so he can check the entire colon for small polyps, etc. Question: Is it a good (unhealthy) idea to wait 1-year before checking again? Thanks.
12587011 tn?1426103698 Then i end up going back to Scripps and getting a totally new Dr thinking that my original Scripps Dr missed that 12mm polyp. Anyways i had that 3rd colonoscopy done this morning and they found another 5 polyps. one of them 5mm. Im pretty freaked out that in 14 months i could get another 5 polyps one being that big already. So now im in my head that maybe that initial 12mm polyp grew in that short 4 month window between my 1st and 2nd colonoscopy. Ive always thought Polyps grew really slow.
Avatar n tn I had a colonoscopy and I had three precancerous polyps removed. can someone explain what the different types of polyps are and since I have had these what precautions that i need to take so these dont come back again. my dr said I just need another colonoscopy in 5 yrs instead of the usual 10.
Avatar n tn The good thing about colonic polyps is that they're very slow growing and they take a long time to turn cancerous, if indeed they are malignant. Most polyps are benign. I'm very glad that your polyps were removed early and I'm betting that the prognosis will be good! My brother had two polyps removed last year after he had rectal bleeding for a year. His were benign and he's in good shape. I wish the same for you!
Avatar n tn 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 had a colonoscopy today and my GI specialist could not past the first 20cm of my colon where there was a sharp bend. She said she had resistance and is now sending me for a CT of my pelvis and abdomen just to check everything. I have had two prior colonoscopies which were perfectly normal. The last one I had was 4 years ago. I have no family history of colon cancer. I have had no pain or problems and just had a series of blood tests including a chemistry, cbc with diff.
Avatar m tn I have a colon screening scheduled in the next few weeks. I have been having some cramping and associated pain and they suspect IBS or Colitis. I am 49 and would have been looking at a routine screening in a year or so anyhow. I am prone to skin tags...does this mean that I would have an increased probablility of them finding polyps at the same time? How much discomfort can I expect?
Avatar m tn Is there a history of colon cancer in the family? A lot of things determine how often you should be scoped for polyps. The fact that you are developing them with frequency would lead me to believe that you need to be very vigilant with it. You need to talk with a GI doctor to get a thorough answer on this. Best of luck to you.
3287038 tn?1398426027 The inflammation in the peri-appendiceal area is often referred to as a cecal patch and typically is asymptomatic and does not warrant additional treatment. The reason to have a surveillance colonoscopy periodically is to check for polyps and dysplasia which is the earliest sign of cancer. Random colon biopsies are obtained to check for dysplasia. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Hello A rectal erythema usually means the sides of the colon walls are red and inflamed, can be due to polyps, ulcers, etc. I would ask your doctor what was found and the meaning of it.
Avatar f tn when wake up from colonoscopy Dr says I removed lots of pulps,but i could not get them all cause you have a twisted colon.
Avatar n tn Will a colonoscopy show if a person has used fiber laxatives daily or a stool softener on a daily basis? Will it show the colon to be unhealthy if laxatives have been used? I have had blood in my stool samples and the doctor recommended a colonoscopy but I have had to use fiber and stool softeners because of constipation and hemorraids.
Avatar n tn hi, i had a colonoscopy today. I had no colon polyps but he told my wife after that my small intestine looked irritated or something to that fact. He said he took a piece for a biopsy. My question is i think i might be having problems with yeast overgrowth. would the biopsy detect that? I wasn't able to ask him because i was out of it.
Avatar f tn do all polyps turn into cancer? and are there different types of colon polyps?
Avatar f tn Immediatley I thought about being aware during a colonoscopy. Just wonder what quips we miss out when the colon team are flopping a limp person around on the table. Things like 'oh man look at that' or 'I'm going cave exploring this weekend', or 'what's in the cafeteria today, hope it's not sausage again' or 'you brining brownies for the Christmas potluck' or 'did you hear that echo, hello-hello-hello', or 'is that a gerbil's tail'.
Avatar n tn This is very important to go for colonoscopy, we have in family colon cancer.If would be possible colonoscopy as prevention in 1970' my mother wouldn't have to die in age 47! I am going for prevention check up every a few years and next week again. Blood in stool is never good, my advise is not to delay and just go for the colonoscopy. It's really fast... Only the drinking of that gallon of "water" is harder. But still worthy for exange of your health!!! Vorried J.
568565 tn?1216788785 My primary gave me a referral, I went in for a colonoscopy, found multiple precancerous polyps, I am 38 yrs old, no family history. Told me they were large enough that I am blessed I did not wait until I was 50. They also diagnosed me wiht spastic colon which was causing my pain and loose bowels. First time in my life I was thankful for loose bowels and discomfort, other wise I would not have gotten it done so young.
Avatar f tn Colonoscopy. No new polyps. Severe spastic colon resulting in painful procedure. Put on cyclobenzaprine by Dr. Hollis. Vitamin D dose day. 50,000 UI.
Avatar m tn I just had a colonoscopy done and polyps were removed from my Colon and stomach and I was also diagnosed with gastritis can gastritis lead to stomach cancer..
Avatar m tn I work in a university-affiliated hospital, so getting any tests is easy. The doc doing my physical recommended a colonoscopy; which I scheduled but when they found out that I had a bad (really bad) reaction to Versed during dental surgery they had me reschedule with a CRNA for diprivan instead of Versed. This wasn't possible because I'm allergic to eggs (therefore allergic to propofol).
