Colon Polyps Cauterization In Colonoscopy
What is the cause for colon polyps? I went in for my five year colonoscopy and they removed three. Five years ago, they removed two. These are benign
Not known: It is good that you had colonoscopy and had the polyps removed. We do not know the exact cause of polyps. It is likely a combination of genetics, diet and environment. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
Normal iron levels however hgb is low 13.6. What this mean? Bening colon polyps removed. Diverticulosis diagnosed from most recent colonoscopy.
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?
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.
Can colon polyps or caner cause bladder irritation or UTI I am waiting for a colonoscopy and now getting bladder irritation and frequency of urine.?
If brother had colon polyps removed and so did mom...do I need a colonoscopy to check? I had a negative fecal test by my doctor?
Yes: Yes! If not discuss with your MD!
No: In the hands of a well trained gastroenterologist using the right sedation, you should feel no pain during colonoscopy. The procedure should last around 20 to 30 minutes. You may feel some bloating after colonoscopy. You need to ask your gastroenterologist what type of sedation is used. Propofol is clearly superior to versed/valium.See 2 more doctor answers
Chronic iron def & anemia (5 yrs). Iv iron good for 6 months. No endometriosis, fibroids, colon polyps, etc. Wth? (3 endoscopes, 2 colonoscopies)
May not be colon: You do not mention that you have seen a hematologist. You may need to do that for further workup, if no cause for bleeding is found. Also, there is a way to look at the small bowel to make sure the bleeding is not coming from there, called a capsule endoscopy, where you swallow a capsule with a camera in it. See your gastroenterologist.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Not all polyps are pre-canerous, most are. The determination of whether the polyp is precancerous or not usually requires examination by a pathologist and that necessitates removal. There is no good reason to not remove a polyp detected on colonscopy. All most all colon cancers start in polyps, therefore it is necessary to remove polyps to prevent colon cancer.See 2 more doctor answers

My wife had a colonoscopy and they found a 3cm sessile polyp in the transverse colon @ 60 cm. The polyp was removed in a piece meal fashion. What does that mean?
Morselated or: Piecemeal means not intact -- one likes to see margin, whether the polyp has typical or frank cancer cells in the stalk base. Loop/snare removal may "perforate" bowel integrity but that is preferred. Many times this is reason for open/robotic directed colectomy. Discuss plans for follow up with you GI doc. Ask about pathology report.See 1 more doctor answer
