Have Crohns. GI wants to do check-up colonscopy. Unilateral leg swelling w/ vein stick out; MRI, vein ultrasound, ABI, norm. Proceed with colonoscopy?
Yes: Sometimes there is a microperforation with Crohns and a locatlized inflammatory process is set up where DVT occurs within the femoral or external iliac vein on the left side. This could produce the unilateral leg swelling which I assume would be on the left. If this proved to be such as on pelvic CT then anticoag and even a cava umbrella might be necessary and of course the colonoscopy. ...Read more

Uc flare with thin stools, chunks of blood in stool, and frequency. Egd, colonoscopy, biopsies & digital perianal & rectal exam all normal. confused?
UC is long-term: Ulcerative colitis is a lifelong inflammatory disease of the lining of the large intestine and rectum, that may have systemic consequences, is often relapsing, and can lead to colon cancer. Flares may occur acutely, even after an unremarkable colon evaluation. Don't delay in ruling out superimposed infection, & seeking help from your gastroenterologist. Call him/her now-- ...Read more

Colon cancer age 30?? RUQ pain, fecal occult test negative- CT- Normal- (GI tract WNL no obstruction or perforation) should I get colonoscopy for pain
Probably: Colon cancer is unlikely in your age group, but other GI and colon diseases can also cause such symptoms. Have you had your gallbladder evaluated? Remember, colon cancer has minimal symptoms and CT is NOT a great test for it. In sum though low yield I would likely recommend colonoscopy to you based on what I've read. ...Read more
Had bright rectal bleeding for 1 month, colonscopy showed bulge near cecum. CT scan showed minor nodes around colon. Infection? Bleeding gone feel wel
Glad it's gone : Most likely sources of bleeding from the rectum are hemorrhoids, diverticulosis, and something called arteriosus-venous malformations (AVM's). If the bleeding has stopped, great. If it returns, ask your gastroenterologist about these problems, and which one they think it is. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Should i worry about pancreatic cancer?Urq disc.&occ floating stool. Normal stool tests, CT scan, colonoscopy, u.S., hida scan, endoscopy=gerd/gast. Im 34
Probably not: It appears that all test are normal except for the egd or endoscopy showing gastritis. Assuming normal blood workup as well, i would say that it is not likely that you have pancreatic cancer. My suggestion is that you sit down with your doctor and discuss all tests results and treatment plan. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pencil stools, severe constipation and abdominal pain. Gastro is recommending colonoscopy. Would a virtual colonoscopy be sufficient enough?
Can i relax about cancer?Urq disc.&occ floating stool.Normal blood/stool tests, CT scan, colonoscopy, ultrasound and hida scan, endoscopy=gerd/gastritis
I'd relax for now: Your pain and stool fat changes sound like gall bladder disease, though proven not present. Was the gerd region biopsied? If so and negative, your comprehensive and perhaps more than appropriate workup shows within the limits of present technology, you don't have a detectable cancer. Longstanding gerd can be a pre-cancerous change over the years however and may warrant future follow-up endoscopy. ...Read more

Bleeding red stools daily 1 month, gone now.. Colonscopy cleared, CT scan showed few enlarged nodes around colon. Gi said infection. Ask 4 biopsy?
No: Red blood in stool more frequent from anal problems rather than colon, as such a neg. colonoscopy and as a result no area requiring bx. If digital exam does not define an anal lesion or internal hemmorhoids then whatever the problem has resolved and again no bx required. Check for a repeat bleed and this followed by anoscopy. ...Read more
