Polyp (Definition)

A polyp may occur anyplace on the body, but is most commonly seen in the colon when a colonscopy exam is done. It is a bump or protrusion from the lining of the GI tract and colon, which can can be benign or turn ...Read more

Is 8 mm large for a cecum polyp? I'm 37 yo. Should I be concerned? Biopsy said benign. Wasn't removed.

Is 8 mm large for a cecum polyp? I'm 37 yo. Should I be concerned? Biopsy said benign. Wasn't removed.

Depends: 8mm is moderately large, if it was an adenoma it should be removed completely...Though if was non specific inflammation or a lipoma excision is not needed.

Diminutive polyp: No reasons to worry before the pathology report. Most polyps are benign, and even if that is not the case, being diagnosed early will give you a good prognosis.

My partner had 2 x 3mm sessile polyps removed and has slight adema in caecal mucasa, obliteration of vascular pattern, , biospys taken from cecum, ?

And your question?: Not sure what your question is but finding out the biopsy results on the polyps and the inflamation of the cecum should give you the answers you need.

What step should I take about a large recurring sessile polyp located in the cecum but up against the ileum? It is now 15mm two years after the original 55mm benign polyp was removed endoscopically. Try endoscopy again? Resection?

What step should I take about a large recurring sessile polyp located in the cecum but up against the ileum? It is now 15mm two years after the original 55mm benign polyp was removed endoscopically. Try endoscopy again? Resection?

Polyp: The answer really depends on what kind of benign polyp it is. Generally you should listen to your physician about this. If you want a second opinion and can get a hold of the pathology reports from both times it's been removed, I would be happy to review those for you. Just contact me here on Healthtap concierge. Good luck.

Cecal polyp: would the correct treatment be adbominal perineal resection?

Cecal polyp: would the correct treatment be adbominal perineal resection?

Cecal polyp: Cecal polyp is located in the proximal colon where the small intestine meets the large bowel. Apr (abdominal perineal resection) is usually reserved for rectal lesion. It is a different part of anatomy.

I have lynch syndrome and have a colonoscopy every year, I am 47 y/o. I had 4 polyps removed today and 1 was 5mm. Is it possible that it could be cancerous, and I have a prominent fold in my cecum, what does that mean could it be cancer? It was biopsied as

Anatomy discreption: An anatomical description no it does not mean cancer, result of biposy is the answer, lynch syn is heriditory nonolyposis colorectal cancer (hnpcc) will not see true polyps vs familial adenomatous polyposis (fap) where you see true polyps. Good luck for biopsy report.

Can a polyp in the ileo cecal valve cause cancer?

Can a polyp in the ileo cecal valve cause cancer?

You can only know: This after an endoscopy, and the polyp may already be cancer...Only a biopsy, and in this case a removal, will reveal the facts. Villous adenomas and carcinoids can live at this address, and they also can bleed.

Diminutive cecum polyp I have a history of colon cancer I am so nervous?

Diminutive cecum polyp I have a history of colon cancer I am so nervous?

No reason to be nerv: Since you are under proper medical care of a doctor who is checking your colon regularly, you will do well. Polyps are caught early and removed safely if you get a Colonoscopy test ddone every one to 2 years for the next 5 years, then reduce the frequency as advised by your gastroenterologist.

Would a CT scan show a hyperplastic polyp in the cecum?

Would a CT scan show a hyperplastic polyp in the cecum?

Only if very big: Plain ct would not find a polyp (especially a hyperplastic polyp which tend to be small and in the left colon and rectum). Ct colonography ("virtual colonoscopy") may show a polyp in the cecum, if it is at least 6mm in size; can't really see things smaller than that., and can't biopsy anythingseen w/o colonoscopy. Can't tell polyp is hyperplastic w/o biopsy.

Colonscopy revealed "a small lesion near the cecum." Isn't that considered a polyp? I though all polyps were removed? Instead m having CT scan.

Colonscopy revealed "a small lesion near the cecum." Isn't that considered a polyp? I though all polyps were removed? Instead m having CT scan.

? colonoscopy lesion: Might be - but I suspect that it doesn't have the appearance of a polyp and the concern is that its in the wall of the colon - hence the need for a CT - what did the path report (if it was biopsied) show?? it may also be a very non descript area - not normal appearing on colonoscopy and not able to be biopsied but something that warrants further investigation.

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?

Probably okay.: It may be a polyp or some other abnormality which was seen. It is impossible to know until it is evaluated. Certainly it is important to follow through. Good luck.

What type of test is done to check for polyps in males?

What type of test is done to check for polyps in males?

Polyps Where?: I am not clear what part of a males body you are referring to. If you mean polyps in the colon, a colonoscopy would be the best test to identify and biopsy them.

Curative intent: What is the stage of colon cancer? I am assuming that this is a surgery to cure your colon cancer. Surgery has to be done to make sure that no colon cancer is left behind and that will depend on how severe is your problem. Post op- you will need to make some adjustment with your diet speficifcally and with your life in general- but you should be fine.

Type of colon polyp that is fast growing?

Depends on size and: How fast it is growing. It could be cancer, so it probably should be removed. Consult with your GI specialist.

Rectal Bleed on/off for month @ end of stool. Had clnscpy 2 yrs ago. Non-C type polyps & int hem. Should I worry or have another clnscpy? What is it?

Rectal Bleed on/off for month @ end of stool. Had clnscpy 2 yrs ago. Non-C type polyps & int hem. Should I worry or have another clnscpy? What is it?

Internal hemorrhoids: Internal hemorrhoids are common and may bleed occasionally, especially if one is constipated or strains with bowel movements. The usual treatment is to use a stool softener and increase fiber in the diet. If you have rectal bleeding it's best to discuss with your physician before assuming it's "just from hemorrhoids". Your physician will decide if you need a colonoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy
