39y/o, had 2 polpys removed (sigmond & descending, villous adenoma w/high grade dysplasia). Will i get colon cancer even though 2 polyps were removed?

No.: If you have close follow up and colonoscopies you can avoid cancer. You should start by having genetic testing to see if you have hnpcc syndrome. If you do you will need yearly or every other year colonoscopies. ...Read more

Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...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

Can a person develope obstructive colon cancer two years after scope that showed 1 hyper and 1 adenoma polyp and diverticulosis?

Yes: It is possible, although rare. The most common explanation would have been a missed colon polyp during the past procedure, due to either poor colon prep (stool in colon) or incomplete procedure due to technical reasons. Aggressive cancers (with genetic mutations - usually hereditary) can lead to obstructive cancer in a year. ...Read more

Colon biopsy:huge tubulovillous adenoma with marked atypia, multi foci adenocarcinoma in situ &one tiny focus suggestive of micro invasion.Is it cancer?

If I have polyps in the colon, aged 26- would there be an extremely high incidence of colon cancer later in life?

If I have polyps in the colon, aged 26- would there be an extremely high incidence of colon cancer later in life?

Perhaps??: There are many types of polyps, some common at younger ages, and not all polyps lead to cancer! just having a benign hyperplastic polyp at age 26 probably doesn't influence your colon cancer risk at all! but other polyps are much more worrisome, so find out what kind you had, and discuss your personal risk with your doctor, knowing that surveillance should greatly reduce your chance of cancer. ...Read more

Why isnt stomach or colon cancer chances high in.My 20s? Explain.In detail please

Why isnt stomach or colon cancer chances high in.My 20s? Explain.In detail please

It is a good thing: It's good that the risk to develop colon, stomach or other type of cancer in our 20's , in general , is not high. Unless if you have a strong family history of colon ca such as in familial adenomatous polyposis or stomach cancer, then the risk would be much higher. That is because when we are younger, the gene repair mechanism is still functioning well and exposure to carcinogenic is still limited. ...Read more
