Follow your doctor's: Advice. Hyperplasia of the endometrium may cause abnormal bleeding and having a D&C may help with that as well as allow examination of the abnormal endometrium by a pathologist so see if there is a more serious issue.

NO they don't: Most people with colon polyps have no symptoms! that's why it is so important for people to get screened when appropriate. Generally when you are 50, and maybe sooner if there is a family history of colon polyps.

Symptoms tend to occur late in the polyp-cancer sequence, very late. The best chance of preventing colon cancer is to follow screening guidelines, not wait for symptoms.

No: In general asians have a lower incidence of colon cancer and colon polyps than the average population. This is due to several factors including eating more fish and vegetables and less red meat.

Doubt it: If you do not have fhx or previous polyps & have diet rich in fiber( most hindus) your risk is low. The presence of a hereditary polyposis syndrome is a strong risk factor for developing colorectal polyps. These may include peutz-jeghers syndrome, familial adenomatous polyposis and gardner syndrome.
