Clip will pass: The clip on the stalk of a polyp will fall off after a few weeks. It will likely pass without you knowing about it.

I was wondering is a 5mm adenocarcinoma (pre-cancerous rectal polyp) cause for immediate concern?

I was wondering is a 5mm adenocarcinoma (pre-cancerous rectal polyp) cause for immediate concern?

If that was the case (maybe called a tubular adenoma?) , there should be nothing to worry about. Adenocarcinoma in the colon/rectum implies invasion deeper into the colon. Please clarify the results of your biopsy with your doctor. ...Read more

Colonoscopy is it!: For common rectal or anal problems such as rectal bleeding or pain, a full colonoscopy is commonly "routine" at age 53. Depending upon the symptoms, a simple anoscopy or rigid or flexible sigmoidoscopy might be recommended. Importantly' rectal bleeding should never be attributed to hemorrhoids without an endoscopic exam to document hemorrhoids or, more importantly, rule out a malignancy. ...Read more

They do run in families, and removing them before they can become cancer can be life-saving. I would see a gastroenterologist immediately. Do not delay. Good luck. ...Read more
