Just had colonoscopy. Sigmoid colon: a diminutive adenomatous looking polyp and a hyper plastic polyp. transverse colon: adenomatous polyp. Bad? Thnx
My colonoscopy microscopic diagnosis: transverse colon polyp biopsy: polypoid colonic mucosa with mild nonspecific chronic inflamation...what is this?
It can happen: At the time of detection, most polyps are not cancerous. Hoever, over time polyps can develop pre-cancer changes in the cells which then become early cancer changes and finally fully developed cancer. It is best to strictly follow your gastroenterologists screenig schedules if you already have had polyps and get regular screeinig colonoscopies done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
35yo. F. W/ hyporthyroidism. colonoscopy/endoscopy 11/20/14. Diminutive 3mm polyp of sigmoid colon. Random biopsies of ileum and colon done. Cancer?
Tough one!: There is an ileorectal anastomosis - when the colon is removed we can attach the ileum - part of the end of the small intestine - to the rectum. There is also an ileosigmoid anastomosis - when the ileum is attached to the sigmoid colon. Often the area is called the rectosigmoid region so this leads to the confusion. There is no ileorectal sigmoid anastomosis. ...Read more
Colonoscopy results-tubular adenoma colon polyp, diverticulosis&hemorrhoids. I was told prep not complete-should I repeat colonoscopy sooner than 3yr?
No ...: ... On the contrary. The smaller the polyp, the less likely it is to be "cancerous". Sessile just means flat (harder to find) versus pedunculated (mushroom-shaped). The precancerous type of polyps are adenomatous and serrated polyps (documented on pathology). Hyperplastic polyps in general are almost always benign and never turn into cancer. ...Read more
My colonoscopy biopsy shows colonic mucosa with reactive lymphoid aggregates. I was having bleeding & mucous. Uc or crohn's? Or normal?
Nonspecific finding: Lymphoid aggregates are commonly found in the colon and small bowel. They are a normal finding. Excessive lymphoid aggregates could be related to infections or ibd but they are relatively a nonspecific finding, especially if the other features of ibd are not present. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Colon:2x3cm non lifting flat lesion(malignant suspicion)couldnot be removed by polypectomy, needs segmental surgical resection.Surgery or laparoscopy?
Either way: Must be removed , laparoscopic surgery will have slightly quicker recovery, less pain , due to your cardiac surgery which ever takes shorter operation time time you should choose, increased intra abdominal pressure may not be good for you as in laparoscopy discuss with your surgeon and cardiologist ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Look vs take...: Hysteroscopy is a procedure that looks inside the uterus, without incisions. If a polyp is present, it can be removed with instruments placed thru the hysteroscope - short recovery. A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus (containing the polyp) - with or without the removal of the ovaries thru incisions- longer recovery. ...Read more
No, but banding is.: Appropriately sized internal hemorrhoids can be treated by rubber band ligation, often in the office without anesthesia. This is a tried and true treatment for bothersome internal hemorrhoids. Snare polypectomy is a technique used during colonoscopy to remove larger polypoid growths in the colon. ...Read more
Is it normal to still be bleeding after having a hysteroscope, d&c, polypectomy, & some light pain 9 days ago?
Had a d&c/polypectomy on discharge it states no sex for 6 WKS! Isn't it 2 weeks for this procedure? I won't wait 6 that is absurd or am I wrong?
One way to find out: There is one easy way to find out, ask your surgeon as there may have been complications necessitating a longer interval. ...Read more
I had a hysteroscope with polypectomy yesterday afternoon and I only spotted for an hour and haven't bled at all anymore. could i b bleeding inside?
Hysteroscopy: Hysteroscopy uses a small camera inserted through he vagina into the uterus to allow visualization of the lining. A scraping of the lining can then be done to remove it and any small lesions arising from it. A hysterectomy removes the uterus +/- ovaries and tubes. Sometimes a hysteroscopy can lead a physician to recommend hysterectomy. Talk to your GYN about what is best for you. ...Read more
Should stop: Immediately if this was the cause of your bleeding. You may see minor bleeding for up to 10 days but if this was the cause of your bleeding, it should stop promptly. If concerned call your endoscopist promptly and discuss. ...Read more
Depends: You might commonly experience bleeding after polypectomy, but this should not be more than a regualr period; this might last for 4-6 weeks; however if the bleeding persists longer or is very heavy; then you might have another cause for the bleeding (for example adenomyosis, dysfunctional bleeding etc); you need to discuss it with your gyn. ...Read more
