Ascending Colon Polyps
A ascending colon polyp worse then anywhere else in the colon. How can I prevent more. High grade removed in may, surgically. When do I need next scope?
Not sure of your: Question but a precancerous polyp regardless of the location in the colon is concern for futue polyp/cancer development especially if high grade dysplasia was present. Follow your surgeon's or GI doctors advice on follow up colonoscopy, but I usually recommend a colonoscopy 1 year after surgery. ...Read more
My mom got ascending colon adenomatous polyps with a size of 2.5cm^3cm (largest one). What is the likelihood of cancer?
If a patient has a tumor in the transverse colon, and a pre-cancerous polyp in the ascending colon, would both colon sections need to be resected?
It depends.: If the gastroenterologist is fairly certain that the precancerous polyp was removed completely, and the pathology results confirm that, then the ascending colon would not need to be resected. Depending on the results of the local lymph nodes, the surgeon might be able to get by with resecting just the transverse colon. Good luck. ...Read more
Is a small ascending colon lesion near cecum the same as polyp? They want to do CT scan. I have no pain or family history of CC. Should I be worried?
By scope vs. Surgery: If your colon polyps are identified colonoscopically, they can be removed piecemeal by cold biopsy, or cauterized by wrapping a snare around the polyp & adding electricity. Even large polyps can be colonoscopically removed in their entirety by emr (endoscopic mucosal resection). Invasive adenomas, dysplastic polyps, & frank malignancies may require surgery (usually laparoscopic). ...Read more
Not common, but can have different types of colon polyps.
Most common would be juvenile polyp. But cases with family history of familial polyposis will have higher incidence of adenomatous polyps (tubular adenoma).
In addition there are other rare types with various syndromes.

Some: There are different types of colon polyps. Some will not turn into cancer. But many (adenomatous polyps in particular) have a high likelihood of turning into cancer if not removed. We think that most colon cancers start as polyps. That is why we recommend colonoscopy at age 50. If you have a precancerous polyp, it can be removed before you get cancer. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No. ..: ... On the contrary. The smaller the polyp, the less likely it is to be "cancerous". Sessile just means flat (harder to find) versus pedunculated (mushroom-shaped). The precancerous type of polyps are adenomatous and serrated polyps (documented on pathology). Hyperplastic polyps in general are almost always benign and never turn into cancer. ...Read more
Yes: They can come back. It depends on the type of polyp, size, genetics, if it was removed completely or in part. Patients that have polyps are predisposed to get new ones, particularly if these are "adenomas". depending on these factors, your gastro doctor will determine how soon you would need a repeat exam. ...Read more
