A 38-year-old male asked:
Disclaimer

Had colonscopy in 2013. What does this mean: mild non-specific colitis near the appendiceal orifice (biopsied)?

Likely benign: Colitis is inflammation of the colon which can be infectious or autoimmune or even benign in nature. Why did you have a colonoscopy? Was it for a specific symptom? What did the biopsy show?
