Had ulcerative colitis for 15 yrs (confirmed by sigmoid and biopsies). Just had 1st colonoscopy, shows granular, loss of vascular pattern and minor ulcers in ascending colon, cecum, sigmoid and colon. Is this UC or chrons?
Ulcerative colitis: All of the biopsies from colonoscopy showed inflammatory changes consistent with ulcerative colitis.

Constipation/C. Dif : There is a small percentage of healthy adult will have c. Difficile toxin tested positive, but they will not need to be treated if they are symptomatic.

If the above not help, you can try MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) otc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No.: If colon cancer is advanced or metastatic, it can show up on abd echo. If colon cancer or hemorrhoids bleed, FOBT can be positive. CEA and CA 19-9 have no place in detection of colon cancer, hemorrhoids, or polyps. CEA is sometimes useful in following colon cancer for any possible spread. ...Read more

Colon cancer age 30?? RUQ pain, fecal occult test negative- CT- Normal- (GI tract WNL no obstruction or perforation) should I get colonoscopy for pain
Probably: Colon cancer is unlikely in your age group, but other GI and colon diseases can also cause such symptoms. Have you had your gallbladder evaluated?

No perfect tests!!: Some of these tests(CEA) are only useful for far advanced Cancers(not helpful for early detection of polyps or colon cancer. CEA and CA 19-9 are tumor markers, they are useless for most cases of early cancer. Abdominal ECHO has limited usefulness to detect fluid and certain cystic lesions, not useful for Colon Cancer. The best test for checking colon for polyps and colon cancer is Colonoscopy ...Read more

I had a colonoscopy Cuz of nausea,bloating,cramping,diarreah.small polyp found,awaiting biopsie. What r all the diff colon diseases?
Too big a topic: Can't answer "all the colon diseases" in this small field. The large categories are infectious, malignant, inflammatory, drug-induced, and inherited. The biopsy result of your polyp will tell you what kind it is and therefore what category it falls into. Someone your age usually has benign (non-cancerous) polyps that are found incidentally while a colonoscopy is being done for other symptoms. ...Read more

Gastro recommended CT and colonscopy for mild abdominal pain/gas. 23 yrs old. If CT scan shows nothing, is colonoscopy necessary? no bloody stools
Options available: CT scan of the abdomen may be indicated but not for mild pain alone. If the symptoms are progressive and there is concern for Cancer(unlikely in your age group), then only I would consider doing a CT. Similarly Colonoscopy is not indicated because of pain alone.If there is bowel irregularity or blood in stool Colonoscopy is reasonable to do. In your case I would watch /monitor for 4-6 weeks, then ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
