Colon polyps sessile

Common Questions and Answers about Colon polyps sessile

colon

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 d for sure have a relative with adenomas in his/her young age), and goes with dozens of colonic polyps. Yet another type is Hereditary Non-Polyposis Colon Cancer (HNPCC), increases the risk of colon cancer, often beginning in the 20s and 30s, but does not cause a large number of polyps. http://www.uptodate.com/patients/content/topic.do?
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 m tn I am 36 years old. Long history of chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain and other IBD type symptoms. Currently being tested to rule out Crohn's. 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.
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 I started in 1992 when I discovered the polyps and removed the colon, had 1997 perforations and fistulas and more, almost died that time during operation just like him with respiratory failure and all for 5 days and not able to come back, 9 weeks no food other than IV, had a miracle on the 7 day and had been fine since then with no more complications, had gastric polyps that they used to call just gastric polyps until just now, this last month my polyps have gone crazy, my stomach is now innum
Avatar n tn It does not mean that you have cancer. There are also polyps that sessile - do not have a stem or stalk (peduncle) - and may need to be watched or removed in another manner.
Avatar f tn I'm a 31 year old female. I had a edg and colonoscopy. The EDG showed gastritis, as for the colonoscopy They found 8mm sessile hyperplasty and one 20mm sessile adenoma polyp. (20mm like wow, they kept saying rare..unusual during explanations) They said when I awoke after procedure, that day could have saved my life. I agree, it's nearly impossible to find info on sessile polyps that size for my age. Doctor is suppose to go into further detail on my follow up appointment nov.1st.
Avatar m tn Robert, I can't address the issue of the 'odds.' I'm not sure anyone can tell you anything about that until the tissue is checked by a pathologist. Whith the loss of (probably) the terminal ileum and some portion of the large colon/small colon, one of the things you will experience is the lack of a 'valve' that allows for measured amounts of contents to move from the end of the small intestine into the large intestine.
922679 tn?1249089446 The polyps removed thee years ago were "polypoid colonic mucosa having tubular and adenomatous configuration of glands. There is increased stromal lymphocyte and plasma cell infiltration. No malignancy is identified." They were both sessile, located in the transverse colon, and from the pictures I have, I can't really judge the size. And here's where you're going to laugh at me or just roll your eyes and groan...
Avatar f tn Thank you for letting me know about the saline technique to raise the polyp. Do you know if serrated polyps are more dangerous than non-serrated adenomas? And, may I ask why you went to a cancer center since you don't have cancer? Are we about the same age? I don't know anyone who has had these polyps except you and I. Take care.
Avatar m tn I had a colonoscopy done on 20 August and the doctor removed 3 polyps in the cecum and stopped the proceedure because he ran out of time. I still have 5 polyps left in the ascending colon and now have to go in to have them removed on September 24. Why could the Doctor not have removed them all at the same time. I think $$$$$ Help!
Avatar f tn I am scheduled for surgery to remove two pre-cancerous polyps that could not be removed during colonoscopy as one is too large and flat and one is ulcerated. They are close to each other allowing one resection. HOWEVER, the two surgeons I have consulted with both say the same thing: that they will remove the appendix, cecum, ileum cecal valve, some lymph nodes in that area and, I believe, some blood vessels (a curtain).
Avatar f tn I agree with the last post. Polyps never just go away, and they can cause bleeding. What are they doing about the nodules? These need to be addressed as well. Has anyone in your family been diagnosed with colon cancer at an early age? Your son is very young to have a polyps and nodules. I would find a different pediatric GI doctor and get a second opinion. There is an hereditary colon disease that presnts with polyps at a very young age.
Avatar f tn after colonoscopies with findings such as what were included on my recent report (see below) with an adeonoma polyp. I am a 45-year old pre-menopausal female with no known colon cancer in the family, but had a colonoscopy because of anemia of unknown causes. Here is what was found on my colonoscopy: 5 mm tubular adenoma negative for high-grade dysplasia or malignancy (it also mentions semi-sessile in the report).

Avatar f tn It just seems like it would be harder to get rid of (sessile kind) and easier to spread because it lies flat on the colon. Should I be concerned about that. I can only assume that he got it all. He said come back in 3 years. He didn't say anything about checking on it or anything. P.s. I am working on my dad and praying for everyone. So glad that you are 5 years cancer free. Awesome!
Avatar f tn Polyps larger than 10 mm are considered very suspicious, and larger than 15 mm are considered dangerous. All polyps larger than 9 mm and of sessile shape (sorta flat - without a stem) are also considered dangerous. If a doctor needs to remove a suspicious polyps, then the entire gallbladder is generally removed (cholecystectomy) since this is far safer. By removing the gallbladder along with the polyps, everything is contained and removed without allowing malignant cancer cells to drift off.
Avatar f tn Recently I have been diagnosed with GALLBLADDER ECHOGENIC SESSILE POLYP of 3.3 mm PLease advise me further action to be taken.
Avatar m tn So this is update,i done my colonoscopy and upper endoscopy,doctor found 3 small polyps less than 5 mm,polyps are sessile,they completly removed all 3 polyps and take biopsy..also she found few small diverticulis,with minor inflamation and internal hemorrhoids with minor inflamation too.. She said that my occult blood may be from all three conditions.. One of three polys had small errosions on surface,im afraid that polyp is maybe different than others two..
Avatar f tn I had a colonoscopy and endoscope of my stomach two years ago. I had two small polyps removed as a result of my colonoscopy and was told to come back in 5 years to repeat (I am 47, but asked to have the colonoscopy before the recommended age of 50 for personal reasons). There was nothing else abnormal with the colonoscopy, and they found a small fundic polyp that was unremarkable. I had some epigastric pain back then and they put me on Prilosec which took care of the pain.
Avatar m tn Colon polyps in most people do not cause pain.When signs and symptoms of colon polyps are present, they include:Rectal bleedingAnemiaDiarrheaConstipationSome individuals also may experience other symptoms and signs.There are three major groups of colonic polyps, hyperplastic, adenomas, and those associated with polyposis syndromes (genetic).The causes of colonic polyps are unclear.
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 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 n tn a new study shows that eating three servings of fish per week appears to cut the risk of developing colon polyps that could lead to cancer. Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health and Vanderbilt University in Tennessee surveyed more than 5,300 individuals about their eating habits. All of those surveyed also had colonoscopies.
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 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.
