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 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 n tn Second colonoscopy Jan 6. Doc found multiple polyps, eight 2-3 mm "polyps" removed and described as hyperplastic. Next colonoscopy March 30. I wish someone would think outside the box as I am wondering if my polyps are an allergic reaction or maybe hives (I have experienced pressure hives when extremely stressed). Being told you have colon cancer IS a stressor! Three docs and three different descriptions and still no resolution....
Avatar f tn Have 3 large polyps on right side of colon got to have surgery is there any concerns?
Avatar m tn form where you develop fewer polyps at a slower rate. Both eventually both require that the colon be removed but with AFAP you can often make it till 60 before having to have it removed. Your GI doctor should have suspected this right away. Have you had a parent develop colon cancer at a young age? You need to have FAP ruled out because there are many facets to it that you need to be aware of.
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 do all polyps turn into cancer? and are there different types of colon polyps?
974371 tn?1424653129 I had colonoscopies every year then for two or three years, each year polyps were removed. I now have one every three years (I think that is a limit set by Medicare for screening) and every year polyps are removed, none have been large or cancerous. So, does this experience suggest an answer? It would be my guess tumors can always be removed if the removal itself doesn't damage something else so badly that that damage is worse than the tumor - cure worse than the disease.
Avatar n tn Have constant diarhea 24.7. No weight loss. Recently has 3 or more polyps removed for a second time. Just found out surgeon also fould a very large mass in lower colon and just left it and did not tell me about it my regular doctor did. Why would he have not removed this mass? My usual doctor didn't have a clue why not. I am practically incontinent at this time. I am a 69 year old malemwith diabetes and am abese. Have perephial artery disease.
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 f tn I was diagnosed with four pre cancerous polyps which were removed. Exactly what does this mean? Also my colon specialists' assistant said I should have another colonoscopy in 3 years. Does it take 3 years to grow polyps? Would it be better to have one next year instead. My first husband died of colon cancer so it concerns me. Thank you for your assistance.
Avatar f tn Normally they want to see you every 2-3 years once you have had polyps removed, because chances are you will develop more and want to stay on top of this. I'm assuming that Dr. Oz was told to return in 3 "months?" If so, his case is different, and his polyp may have progressed further. If you haven't had another colonoscopy, you should. The polyps as you know, can easily be removed during the scope. Timing is everything with this.
Avatar n tn The ultrasound revealed I have a 1cm polyp in my gallbladder (so i will get it removed soon) and, much to my Dr.s surprize, two colon polyps (but rather small). I am anxiously awaiting the results of the biopsy. Im assuming my discomfort is a result of the faulty gallbladder, but is it possible that the colon polyps are related to the gallbladder polyp, and should i request that other organs be checked for polyps as well?
Avatar n tn With no biopsy results or genetic blood draw results back they said i needed my colon removed. They found about 25 polyps. I think i need a second apinion,what kind of doctor would i need to see . tThe doctor i saw was a colon and rectal surgen.

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 So today I had the pleasure of going through a Colonoscopy procedure.. I'm only 42 but my grandmother, who I never had the pleasure of meeting, died of colon cancer at an early age.. During the procedure the Dr removed 4 polyps but he said they were small and said not to worry, they didn't seem cancerous.. How accurate are these Dr's typically??
Avatar f tn Familial Adenomatous Polyposis is an hereditary colon disease. It usually presents with polyps in the colon starting at the age of 10, and depending on the type of FAP the polyps do turn cancerous either in the 30's or late 40's. It's extremely rare to develop colon cancer at your age even when this disease is in the family. The three of you need to meet with a Gastroenterologist to determine if this is what is in your family.
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 m tn A polyp in my sigmoid colon was to large to remove during colonoscopy. Most of the polyps were concentrated in the section of colon removed, It was done laposcopically. 2 weeks from tommorrow my follow up colonoscopy and have been told that depending on how that goes will dictate the frequency of future colonoscopies ie close surveillance.
Avatar f tn I'm no expert, just family who have experienced colon cancer. Most of the time, you'll get unusual digestive symptoms and often blood if there's colon cancer. Your husband didn't have blood in his stool samples, so that's good, and he hasn't experienced digestive problems, so that's also good. The whole idea is to catch colon cancer early, better prognosis, and that's why they push these colonoscopies.
Avatar f tn We have FAP in our family and from what I know adenoma polyps and the sessile serrated are only different in shape, both are pre-malignant and need to be removed. In our family thousands of polyps carpet the colon and removal of the colon is their only hope. I lost a husband, brother-in-law, son and grandson to FAP, I would much rather have been dealing with a sessile. So long as you remain vigilant with your scopes, you will be fine. Take care.
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 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?
