Dad had tubular adenoma polyp removed at age 40. Heridatry? Symptoms of this?

Premalignant: Tubular adenomas can give rise to cancer if left in place, and having had one is a marker that he may get more. This does tend to run in the family. You'd do well to get occasional colonoscopies as health maintenance for yoruself. He should also continue to be checked. ...Read more

My first exam in '13 showed tubular adenomas with mild dysplasia; this year's exam shows 2 with "mild to moderate" dysplasia. Should I repeat yearly?

Colonoscopy: If you had polyps with moderate dysplasia, it is better to have it checked out the following year and probably until you get a negative colonoscopy. If the polyps are removed completely, colon cancer could be prevented. ...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

I think my tubular adenoma tumor is back and I want to know what the symptoms would be.

Bleeding: Really, the only sign you would have would be some blood in the stool, but if it were a massively large adenoma, then you could have symptoms typical of bowel obstruction, such as bloating, cramping, and emesis. I doubt this would occur. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it possible to develop another tubular villi adenoma after a removal only 2.5 yrs ago? I am 34 / female Thank you

It is possible: One reason to repeat a colonoscopy 1-2 years after removal of an adenoma is to be sure it didn't grow back, and that nothing else was missed. If a repeat colonoscopy is negative, then perhaps you can wait longer. Speak to your gastroenterologist. ...Read more

My pathology reports sated I have a. 4 CM rectal polyp, tubular adenoma, with no high-grade dysplasia or malignancy. When should a follow up be done?

My pathology reports sated I have a. 4 CM rectal polyp, tubular adenoma, with no high-grade dysplasia or malignancy. When should a follow up be done?

How was your prep?: "guidelines" are one thing but other considerations come into play when planning your next colonoscopy: 1) what was the method of polyp removal (could the technique used have left polyp material behind?); 2) what was the quality of your prep (if poor, your doc will want you back sooner to complete the exam so other polyps aren't missed); 3) risk of a polyposis syndrome brings you back sooner too. ...Read more

I'm 36 and had a 5mm sessile adenoma removed from my cecum. How often should I get a colonoscopy now and is this adenoma of high risk for cancer?

5 years: It is some thing you should discuss with your GI doctor. In general getting a repeat colonoscopy in 5 years is safe. You may consult this site for more information on this topic:

Is 2 yr f/u after 1.5cm peicemeal removal of SA in ascending colon on target? &2 tubular adenomas from sigmoid removed, all 3 LGD. Precancer or benign?

Sounds right.: Tubular adenomas do occasionally progress to become cancers. Depends upon size and appearance under the microscope. If there is low grade dysplasia then there is no rush to re-scope. However they do need to be watched (just like you would watch a funny mole on your skin.) Listen to your doc about the appropriate interval for repeating the colonoscope. ...Read more

I had two tubular adnomas removed in '09 at 33, one hyperplastic and one tubular adenoma removed in '12. Am I likely to get colon cancer. No fam hstry?

Tubular adenomas: The fact that you have tubular adenomas at such an early age probably does slightly raise your lifetime risk of colon carcinoma. However, now that you know you can have careful followup and screening to make sure all adenomas are removed before they can develop into colon cancer. ...Read more

I have a tubular adenoma in my left breast can it turn into cancer and should I have it removed right away?

I have a tubular adenoma in my left breast can it turn into cancer and should I have it removed right away?

Rare but benign: These are quite uncommon. I don't believe they have any malignant potential beyond normal breast, but if the mass bothers you, feel free to have it excised. Since it's uncommon, see if your biopsy has been or can be looked at by two pathologists. ...Read more

In my 30s.Eat healthy diet, normal weight, exercise. Have had 5 colon polyps removed between my last 2 colonoscopies? 4 benign, 1 tubular adenoma. Common?

Follow-up care: Colon polyps are not normal, but it is good that you had colonoscopy to have these removed. Do you have family history of colon cancer? Even if you do not, do follow your doctor's advice for follow-up colonoscopy at no more than five years from now.
Wish you good health. ...Read more

In my 30s. Eat healthy diet and exercise. Have had 5 colon polyps removed between my last to colonoscopies? All benign. 1 tubular adenoma. Risk?

Real risk: Your diet and exercise have little or no impact on your likelihood of developing colon cancer, but are very much worth doing for their own sake, for the fitness satisfaction, and other health benefits. This is mostly about your genes and dumb luck. You'll want to be 'scoped fairly often and little lesions removed promptly to reduce your risk greatly. ...Read more

Could my diagnosis of a colon tubular villus adenomatous polyp of 1.5 CM have a link with possible adenomayosis in my uterus?

No: They are very different processes, though they sound similar. The former could be pre malignant, the latter isn't. That's why we do colonoscopies, so we can remove polyps early on- as in your case. That was very wise from your part. ...Read more

Should a hepatic adenoma always be removed surgically?

Not Necessarily: Small adenomas have a lower cancer and hemorrhage risk. If they become large, such as >5 cm, the cancer and hemorrhage risk increases and most recommend removing them at that time. They are made worse by oral contraceptives so these should not be used. ...Read more
