Avatar f tn do all polyps turn into cancer? and are there different types of colon polyps?
Avatar f tn I think a gastroenterologist can distinguish between hyperplastic polyps (which are benign) and adenomatous polyps (which are precancerous) by looking. If they were adenomatous polyps, the GI doc would have removed them and had biopsies performed. I am not a doctor, so you should follow up with you personal physician to be on the safe side.
Avatar f tn Hello, Some of the polyps are cancerous. These include adenomatous polyps and familial adenomatous polyposis. In these, after removal, it is recomenneded to get check colonoscopy done after 1-3 years. So you can get it done after 1 year. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar m tn Colorectal cancer is preventable if precancerous polyps (ie, adenomas) are detected and removed before they become malignant (cancerous). Over time, small polyps can change their structure and become cancerous. so it is advisable to take the opinion of a GI surgeon and get it removed. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn i am scared to even go the washroom because of the pain pushing it out. im a athlete, in top shape and i eat healthy. I hear only old people usually get colon cancer. I do not know im my grandma ever had colon cancer, but she has had cancer several times, the first time she was diagnosed at 7 months. im scared of polyps. my appitite has decreased and i am tired alot and even get headaches more frequently.
280234 tn?1470139763 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 m tn Had colonoscopy a couple days ago, and while my doctor didn't find evidence of Crohn's/IBD, he found two polyps in my left (descending?) colon. He said they were approx the size of the bed of his finger nail...(1 cm?) or so...and he removed them and sent them to pathology. He kept saying it was unusual for my age and that although we didn't find the reason for my symptoms, it was VERY good we were in there and found those polyps etc...
Avatar n tn If you're 50 or over, you are due. It not only looks for any problems, it also allows them to remove precancerous polyps that may be found. Its one of the most important preventions for colon cancer. They give you really cool twilight drugs so you don't have to be embarassed or uncomfortable. The day before, you have to drink some flavored drink that cleans your colon out totally. If you choose not to go that route, you can use any brand of psyillium seeds or husks to clean you out.
Avatar n tn To Whom It May Concern: My sister had an endoscopy and colonoscopy. The physician did a biopsy of the esophagus, stomach, and colon where they removed many "very large" polyps. She is 44 y.o., never smoked, rarely has alcohol ( last drink probably a glass of wine at a wedding 1 or 2 years ago ) and is 5 foot 10 inches and weighs about 150 #. She was told she had some precancerous cells in her esophagus.
Avatar f tn I have been prone to polyps since i was 16. several removed and 2 precancerous. My dr said he sees no reason for another colonoscopy for 3 yrs. I will go back in 1 year. If not sooner. I have many complications with my colon. I personally also think that precancer/possible cancer has a mind of it's own. Not to scare you..but for piece of mind, tell your doctor you'd like to have it done sooner and she their response. Just a thought. Best to you.
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.
Avatar f tn You did not mention what the path report says about your other 4 polyps. Are they also precancerous? Where were they located? Were they close to the area where the cancerous polyp was found? If I had a few precancerous polyps surrounding a cancerous one in a particular part of my colon. Personally, I'd get that part of the colon excised to prevent future growth. Also, you need an endoscopic ultrasound to confirm clear margin and no surrounding lymph nodes enlargement.
Avatar f tn I saw the surgeon about having it removed and he felt my symptoms were possibly related to something else and referred me to a GI. I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy. I had two small colon polyps which were precancerous but they were removed and all is good there. Have to have another one in five years. My endoscopy showed some mild gastritis which he felt was anxiety related.
Avatar n tn My big question is my brother (younger) at the age of 20+ (10 yrs ago) had a colonoscopy and he had two polyps, 1 benign the other precancerous. Now that I'm having these changes in bowel movements and some stomach pain I am concerned and would like to hear some other stories that are similar to mine. I would just like to know how many people have had siblings, especially at such a young age, with similar stories.
Avatar f tn I had an internal hemmrhoid but was advised to have the colonoscopy because my paternal grandmother died of colon cancer years ago. They found a 5mm adenomous type polyp and said I need to be rececked in 3 years. My questions are: aren't I too young for this type of precancerous polyp given I eat healthy, not obese, etc and my second question and probably most important is that 6 years ago I had a colonoscopy (rectal bleedng) and it was clear. Did this 5 mm polyp grow in just 6 years?
Avatar n tn During a colonoscopy about 10 months ago the Dr. found polyps, they were removed, biopsied and found to be precancerous (on one side of the colon). The GI Dr rescheduled me for another colonoscopy and 3 months later they were back. I was referred to an Oncologist, who did genetic testing etc. and referred me to a Colorectal Surgeon who again found colon polyps, this was about 3 months after the last inspection. I am opting to have about 80-90% of my colon removed.
Avatar f tn if they remove the precancerous polyps it reduces your risk of cancer by something like over 80% so that's great that you had it done I believe the colonoscopy also tests for UC/Crohn's
Avatar n tn Hey there, I am 33, had blood and mucus for about 2 years and I finally went 3 weeks ago and had colonoscopy and they removed a adanoma polyp which is a precancerous polyp which could eventually turn into colon cancer so do yourself a favor and just demand a colonoscopy and get it done and over with and get a piece of mind. It is really very easy. please keep us updated.
1064271 tn?1385622526 if you have a colonoscopy and are found to have precancerous polyps, then your risk of developing colon cancer is increased and it would be advised that you have a colonoscopy every several years depending upon the number and type of polyps. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn org/colon-polyps/polyp-types.html Some are precancerous and others are benign. One of the things to ask your doctor is whether you could be at higher risk for colon and uterine cancer. There is a family syndrome - hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer HNPCC where family members have a high rate of those three cancers.
Avatar n tn It is important to find any suspicions precancerous polyps before they develop into cancer. During the coloncosopy your doctor can remove precancerous tissue and save you a whole lot of misery. Early detection is key in colon cancer. Don't wait, in its later stages it is a deadly disease. Please get the test.
Avatar n tn Seeing as you do have a history of cancer in your family, and your father did have precancerous polyps removed, i would strongly suggest you call your doctor and arrange to have a colonoscopy. There are MANY possible explanations for rectal bleeding, but if it was the worst case scenario, you would catch it right away and colon cancer is over 92% curable when caught in the first stages.
Avatar n tn I have no family hx to fall back on have diverticulosis and a history of precancerous colon polyps.
Avatar n tn Last year when I was 52 I had polyps removed from my uterus, because of post menopausal bleeding and I also had an endovaginal ultrasound. This year again I am having post menopausal bleeding, I went for another endovaginal ultrasound, they found again more polyps but this time they found a cyst. I am seeing my gynecologist who did the surgeon, last year should I have the cyst removed because of what I have been reading that post menopausal women cysts are at high risk for getting cancer?
Girl Am also have considerable cramping. In the past 10years, i've had 2 breast bx's resulting in precancerous tissues, 3 polyps from the colon removed in 2 colonoscopies over 10 years. I have been scheduled for a D&C next week so he can take a biopsy of both fibroids (or remove them-i can't remember what he said) and do a biopsy on the thickened area of the uterine wall.
Avatar m tn I'm 29 and recently had 3 tubulovillous precancerous polyps removed. I don't meet with the Doc until next week but was curious to see what the general treatment for the future is. They said they removed all the pollyps before cancer was formed. Generally would repeat colonoscopies to monitor future growth be the treatment or do they like to do surgery for this?
Avatar n tn Heard ablation wipes warning signs for edometrial cancer (no bleeding). I have had a precancerous colon polyp removed 3 yrs. Colonoscopy was clear 2 yrs. ago. I don't think is related. I have had pelvic and rectum pain during ovulation for years. Couldn't this pelvic pain be also due to traveling edometrial tissue that maybe has adhered to the colon stimulated by hormones? Would endometrial ablation be a good course of action for someone who has the above symptoms.
