Adenomatous polyp with atypia means..?Just got report from colonoscopy report.no need to worry? Let me knw sir

There are some: missing pieces of information that may be helpful. Size and location of polyp? Tubular or villous (a specific type of growth pattern the pathologist notes). Atypia designates that there may have been some dysplasia, a pre-cancerous type of change. As long as the polyp has been completely removed, no need to worry now. Colonoscopy should be repeated in future based on factors above. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Had a tubulovillous adenoma w/hgd removed via right-hemicoloectomy. Why does a repeat colonoscopy have to be done in a year if polyps grow slow?

Had a tubulovillous adenoma w/hgd removed via right-hemicoloectomy.  Why does a repeat colonoscopy have to be done  in a year if polyps grow slow?

One year is correct: Colon cancer develops from a polyp with high grade dysplasia. A history of dysplastic polyps puts you at high risk of forming new polyps and the pace of growth is uncertain, especially in a young age group.

If your next colonscopy shows no polyps, they will extend the time interval. ...Read more

Five years: Recommendations are that if you have adenomas five to ten years. Normal ten years. two small adenomas should not change this UNLESS you have risk factors such as a positive family history. In your case I think it reasonable and consistent with the guideliines to repeat in five years. ...Read more
