533880 tn?1237612452 I have had many problems with my health since then. I underwent a lower gi and found polyps in my colon by they were not cancerous and it also said I have pre crohns, and at the time I had h pylori which was never treated until a few weeks ago. 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.
280234 tn?1532986249 I was wondering if any other young adults have been diagnosed with colon polyps? I'm a 34/f who was recently diagnosed with a 1.1 cm "Tubulovillous adenoma" during a colonoscopy (was seeing blood/mucous in stool for about 6 months). The lab report came back that it was benign, and my GI doctor said follow up with him in 3 years. From what my GI doctor told me, and what I've read about these, they are considered precancerous. Following up in 3 years makes me nervous.
Avatar f tn His diet could be better and he is slighly over weight. He does not have any symptoms - no cramping, bleeding, changes in bowels, etc. I started reading up about colonoscopies and am shocked that most people have them starting at age 50. His doctor never suggested one until this last appointment. 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 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.
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.
1703392 tn?1307450500 Hello mzak69, As zophai said that every doctor will recommend to get back to checkup after one year. Don't be panic and you got one poly removal luckily it wasn't cancerous. To avoid such kind of colon problems follow a proper diet like vegetables, fruits, fiber rich foods and drink more water. Regular exercises also considerable.
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 n tn I would definatly get a second opinion and also ask for a hida scan if they didnt do one , it does sound like a gall bladder problem, the pain is usually acute and is under the right ribs sometimes into the shoulder area and radiates towards the back .Have you adjusted your diet as fat is bad, and a low fat diet would help..some foods can trigger it so do some research to find a list of foods you can eat and ones to avoid..
577395 tn?1277401364 He had his 1st colonoscopy yesterday. The doctor removed multiple polyps and didn't remove, biopsied 2 polyps. Biopsy results will be ready Aug. 14. Looking at the report makes me realy scared, that he might have colon cancer. Can you please look at it and give me some insight. Really appreciate your help! Any additional information will help. What scares me the most in the reort is Hepatic Flexure.
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 m tn My doctor could not complete the colonscopy due to my long colon. (I have a tortuous colon.) Here is my problem - he saw 3 polyps, but could only reach 1 of them to remove. He wants me to return for another optical colonoscopy, where he will "put me all the way under" (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.
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?
1544786 tn?1293504543 OK so i had problems for a long time going to the bathroom, and i had a colonoscopy yesterday done and it showed i had a few polyps and internal hemmorids, and a spastic colon. My gastro said that the spastic colon is from my previous pregnancy when i told him that this has been going on from before my son.. HE totally did not listen to anything i said ! I am fustrated and pissed off. well anyway he told me the gas in my belly wil go away and DO NOT PUSH IT OUT.
Avatar m tn t involve the rectum, my polyps are there too, but only a few. i also read that when the colon is gone, rectal polyps can develop at a 17% increase, ever hear of that? some of the info is contraditory to what others say. i figured the hydration part would be an issue. a question i had was will my meds go right through my system or will they process normally, ever had issues with that? i am waiting on testing for the apc gene now, my oldest son is being tested by colonoscopy shortly.
Avatar m tn ve had two colonscopies since age 50, my first colonoscopy found a pre-cancerous polyp (had a more dangerous figure, I was told) along with other benign polyps that was which was removed (had no side effects after) I did a follow up colonscopy the year after and another pre-cancerous polyp (except to a lesser degree) was found and removed along with other benign polyps around the same area, the 2nd colonoscopy from a different surgeon I had a lot of stomach pain after.
Avatar m tn I was really hoping to wake up to good news and a clean bill of health. Instead, he found 20 small polyps. My heart sank. 16 of these were in the ascending colon. I was still groggy, and I need to have a follow up visit after the biopsies come back, but he said it’s possible I may have to have that part of the colon removed somewhere down the line. Has anyone else had a problem with polyps like this? I am at the very beginning of researching this.
Avatar m tn After the procedure the doctor said everything looked good and that they rtemoved some polyps from my colon and that I had some changes in the tissue near the esophogeal sphincter and that they biopsied them. He said that he would call me as soon as he had the results. Well, just 2 days ago I got a call and the news was not all good.
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.
1097812 tn?1258292704 Have you been tested for FAP? It sounds like it is in your family, and considering the number of polyps you are developing, it is the attenuated form. I had 5 family members with this. Two died of colon cancer at 32 and 38 because we didn't know the disease was in the family, but this is when my children had to start getting yearly scopes. My sons were dignosed at 12 and 16 and had complete colectomies.
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 My indications for remove colon surgery were 2 cancerous colon polyps on 2 distant places in colon. Who suggest You to go to total colectomy? I'm not sure that constipations are indications for such surgical intervention. I live in Belgrade, Serbia(Europe). My surgery took place in Belgrade on the Institute of oncology and radiology. I think that total colectomy intervention is very safe here - mortality is at very low level.
