Colonoscopy Nodules Found
What would you reccommemd for a 49 year old female who has a colonoscopy report fo"100s of nodules" all throughout her colon?
Colectomy??: Was this your first colonoscopy? Did you know of any polyps previously. A colon that contains literally hundreds of polyps (nodules) suggests a genetic syndrome - the problem being that any of these polyps could potentially be precancerous. You need to discuss this with your gastroenterologist right away, as you may need to have the colon removed. ...Read more
Endoscopy/colonoscopy on 11/20/2014. What does Ileal mucosa showing reactive lymphoid nodules mean? Had 6 different biopsies done
Reactive changes: The terminal ileum contains lymphoid aggregates / nodules as part of its normal makeup. When this part of the body reacts to something foreign, infectious or inflammatory, it reacts by making these lymphoid aggregates / nodules enlarge and show reactive features. Most of the time when the exposure ends, so do the reactive lymphoid aggregates / nodules. ...Read more

Two lung nodules upper right lobe 5 and 2 one nodule lower left lobe 3 mm. All uncalcified. Colonoscopy endoscopy brain MRI normal. What are theseim26?
R u smoker?: The absolute diagnosis of pulmonary nodules is done by a pathologist under microscopic examination. Otherwise speculative. Cat scan or pet scans are not microscopic examinations by a pathologist. If nodules become calcified most likely grannulomas. Carcinomas and grannulomas look alike early on. Close periodic f/u versus early excissional bx advised. Needle bx not DX unless cancer diagnosed. ...Read more

Had colonoscopy 9 years ago, was 23 then found 1 very small adenoma, repeat scopes at 1 and 4yrs clean, now back at 5yrs should I be nervous?
If when taking a colonoscopy and they see polyps do they remove them and when they remove them and something is found what medicine do they use?
Yes: Polyps are removed with instruments passed through a channel in the scope. Instruments are used to cut the polyp and extract it. Very rarely (if polyp large and/or flat) there is a need to inject the polyp prior to removing it, and the most common injected medicine would be epinephrine and normal saline. ...Read more

Colon target lesions: Sorry for confusion, but gastroenterologists commonly use the term "aphthous ulcers" to describe small ulcerations in the colon & small intestine. When terminology is applied precisely, the ulcers are associated with inflammatory bowel disease. Descriptively, but less precise, ulcers of similar appearance are seen in the lower GI tract with use of aspirin, with lymphoid hyperplasia, herpes, others. ...Read more

Today I had bloody maroon colored diarrhea. Recently had a colonoscopy that found nothing. Should I be concerned?
I had a lower colonoscopy and the doctors found nothing abnormal. I still have a fair amount of blood after going the toilet. Should I go back?
Colorectal Surgeon: The bleeding you describe (despite a normal colonoscopy, which does not view the anal canal well) is most likely the result of either internal hemorrhoids or an anal fissure, both of which are often easily treated. I would strongly advise you to see a colorectal surgeon who can diagnose the problem and most likely treat it with either medication or a simple office procedure. ...Read more
