Please tell me, could a polyp of size 1 CM come out of one's anus?

Could be hemorrhoid: Any entity inside your bowel; food, stool, polyp, foreign body, hemorrhoid can and will pass rectally, so yes. Occasionally a polyp will try to pass rectally, but still being attached to the wall of the colon, can not fully detach. A colonoscopy, and/or exam with your doc are the best ways to address this problem. Be well. ...Read more

Polyp?: Without an exam it is hard to say. It could be a polyp, a hemorrhoid, or a skin tag. All of these can be asymptomatic. I would recommend you see your doctor to be sure of what it is. ...Read more

Bleeding, pain: Intl hemorrhoids can give u bleeding with a bowel movement, blood on the toilet paper or in the bowl. Other things that could cause bleeding are best evaluated with colonoscopy. Usually you would get this at 50 years old. But if there is a strong history of colon ca in the family you should get a scope 10 years before the age at which the youngest realtive got ca. Get one now if bleeding. ...Read more

Proctologist: Your best bet for diagnosis and treatment is to consult a proctologist or a colorectal surgeon. You may be dealing with an anal fissure, or a perirectal dermatitis but inflammatory disease of the rectum is a possibility. For these problems I favor a skilled proctologist as he/she is very experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of anorectal diseases. ...Read more

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. There are clear guidelines put out by the american cancer society on the suggested followup for colon polyps. If your next colonscopy shows no polyps, they will extend the time interval. ...Read more

Colonoscopy 1 yr ago found 5 polyps; two Tubular adenoma under 2cm, two 2-5cm, one Tubulovillous 10-20CM. successfully removed. When should I go back?

Colonoscopy 1 yr ago found 5 polyps; two Tubular adenoma under 2cm, two 2-5cm, one Tubulovillous 10-20CM. successfully removed. When should I go back?

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
