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?
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 do all polyps turn into cancer? and are there different types of colon polyps?
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 f tn t give any polyps a chance to get big; this is what I plan to do. If you have a strong stomach you can watch EMRs being done on youtube. My favorite introductory site for EMR is: Also, I learned that gastroenterologists (GIs) now have better ways to see flat polyps, which can easily be missed during a regular colonoscopy. One of these is called narrow band imaging.
Avatar f tn i have many many polyps in my colon( rectal transverse ascending) after 10 yrs now i am full , md's only took out the big ones and left the others there. they had said in 1998 that there was too many and would take several hours to remove them and that he wasn't going to waste his time, yeah this was a surgeon, and alot are atenomous, tublivillous and tubular. and screening was every 2 yrs not yearly, so now it would take several colonoscopies to take them all out.

Avatar n tn As we age, the chances of us developing colon polyps increases, and that's why we are encouraged to have regular colonoscopies beginning at the age of 50. Once a polyp(s) is found, you have a higher chance of developing more, so they want to scope you every 2 years to watch for these. This way they can catch it before it becomes malignant. You have prevented yourself from developing colon cancer by getting scoped and having the polyps removed.
177337 tn?1310059899 At this age and with a family hostory of colon cancer, I would get another scope. The darker the blood, the higher the bleed, and vice versa. The Activia would not cause this. The small streaks 2 years ago were probably hemorrhoids if they found nothing else. But being this close to 50, it's wise to get another scope. This is an age when polyps can develop and that why they tell everyone to get scoped starting at 50. Polyps can bleed, and become malignant.
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.
Avatar m tn Hi......having this many polyps at such a young age is typically a symptom of FAP (Familial Adenomatous Polyposis) or AFAP. This is normally an hereditary colon disease but it can happen spontaneously. FAP normally shows up with many polyps in the colon by puberty but it can be up until 40. AFAP is the "attenuated" form where you develop fewer polyps at a slower rate.
Avatar f tn 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. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn This is due to what you stated, they cannot get a clear view of the colon. I would get a second one, but also from a different doctor. If he found two polyps there may be more, and he doesn't sound like a good one to go to.
107693 tn?1252864443 My question is can having colon polyps and divirticulosis cause a high blood cell count? I had this in May and June but july was 9.6 which is considered in range.
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 n tn Polyps are very common in people over 50 and should be removed as they are found. In AFP polyps can develop very quickly, keep going for your scans. When polyps are caught early they are very rarely cancerous and can be removed. AFP is not always hereditary.
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 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 n tn June of 2008 we found out from an endoscope that the had a carpet of gastric polyps, in Nov of 2008 we found from an EUS that he had thousands of gastric polyps. Since Oct of 07 he has had nausea, diarrhea and feels bloated and full and in pain no matter how little or how much he eats.
Avatar n tn He did anoscopy and told me that it might be my anal fissure, though by that time it had almost healed already. I asked if it can be something in the colon. He said, that it is better to perform colonoscopy. Do you think it is a good recommendation or is it not a right prescription in my case? Thank you.
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.
