974371 tn?1424653129 Have a friend that is about 82. He had surgery fop or colon cancer about two years ago. He has been on some type of Chemo and oral meds since. Was told on one CAT scan, it was stable. Last CAT scan showed rumors had gotten bigger. I don't have many details. The doctor has stopped the Chemo and Cancer meds. Said he discussed it with some board and no other treatment suggested. I find this hard to believe! Can't they do surgery again to remove the rumors?
Avatar m tn Nov 2020 found 5 polyps. One was high grade adenoma (pre-cancerous). In UK we get free treatment on NHS but your GI physician can be anybody. So paid for private consultation with leading colorectal Consultant. His plan was CT scan and another colonoscopy to get baseline analysis followed by 2 yr colonoscopies. CT scan - waiting report. Next steps: Another colonoscopy scheduled for March 2021. I'm requesting CEA test to get baseline reading. I'll ask for this to be done annually.

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 m tn Hi.....I'm glad your cancer was caught early enough for treatment, and polyps are common after 50 and that's why they want us to start having our scopes starting at 50. Polyps are removed during the Colonoscopy and your's was caught early and that's why we have the scopes, to catch these things before they become serious. Food is usually the culprit with gas, so think if you've been eating something out of the ordinary and eliminate it to see if things improve.
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?
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.
225036 tn?1294509400 My grandma and dad have a history of polyps and my grandma had to have 1ft of her colon removed. Do I have a higher chance of having cancer with family history of polyps? My mom also has diverticulosis (sp). Any advice or answers would be great. By the way, I am 35 years old. Thanks in advance for you help.
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 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 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 I was as well found with cancerous colon polyps. They recommend at least 3-5 year check up on sometimes the size of the polyp. They don't want to check on colon polyps every year unless needed because when someone gets an endoscopy or colonoscopy they fill your stomach with air which give you a hernia until you release the air.
Avatar m tn Another question that comes to mind is Do all these hep c patients that go into treatment because the doctors give percentages of success? Or are they actually quite ill prior to treatment, suffering from all sorts of symptoms. Also, did folks ever get sick throughout life (jaundice, total fatigue etc...)Lastly ,I think I was wondering about colonoscopy and maybe I was in the wrong forum but I am curious about after removal of lots of polyps, has anyone had a sore stomach ever since???
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.
1703392 tn?1307450500 How frequent will be determined on the size of polyps and their growth rate that they find. Generally, polyps less than 1.5cm in size are easy to resect endoscopically. Anything larger than that will be at higher bleeding risk - which happened to me before and I had to be admitted to hospital thru ER for bleeding control & monitoring. In fact, even if my polyps were benign, I'd still end up in OR b/c of the hemarrhage.
Avatar n tn I have a half brother that died from colon cancer. 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 n tn I had a screening colonoscopy in Aug and to confirm a resected polyp was complete an EUS was done in Nov. Resected polyp OK but "multiple 5mm polyps were noted throughout the colon". How unusual is this? Only a couple in Aug and then many in Nov!!
Avatar n tn I had my colonoscopy today and he said he found 2 polyps in the sigmoid colon and biopsy a thickened fold in the sigmoid colon. Also said I have Diverticulosis of the sigmoid colon. Does anyone know what this means?
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 f tn do all polyps turn into cancer? and are there different types of colon polyps?
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with Colon spasms. My episode started with pain in the lower-left side of the back and the lovwer-left front side below my belt, then I noticed blood in my stools. My Doctor diagnosed me with diverticulosis. I had a colonoscopy and had a few polyps (no Cancer - Thank God!!!). However, I have been haunted by this for over 2 years now and am going in for another Colonoscopy. My Doctor claims I have Colon Spasms, but I also get feverish a lot and get the chills often.
Avatar f tn Only my grandma, nobody else even polyps. My parents who are over 50 both got colonoscapes, neither one of them had any polyps. Diet. Colon cancer and rectal cancer may be associated with a diet low in fiber and high in fat and calories: Probably A sedentary lifestyle: Yeah, but do try to get at least a little bit of exercise each day. Diabetes: Nope Obesity: I'm only 135 pounds Smoking. I don't smoke Alcohol: I don't drink Growth hormone disorder: I don't think so.
Avatar m tn I had to have my 3 young children scoped yearly, one had his colon removed at 12 and the other at 16 due to the many polyps that carpet the colon and become cancerous with FAP. It was determined that the grandmother who died of colon cancer in her 40's had it and it was being passed down. This is why I STRONGLY suggest a second opinion on this. Take care.
Avatar n tn 7 years ago my husband was diagnoised with colon cancer, because of complications he has undergone 6 different surgeries and now has only his small intestine left. On June 9th he had an endoscope and which showed that his stomach from top to bottom is full of polyps. There were sever biopsies performed and they came back non cancerous but the Dr. said that he would not attempt to do surgery on my husband because he would have to remove the whole stomach.
