Colonoscopy Polyp Resection And Retrieval
GI ordered 2nd colonoscopy in hospital 3 weeks after ascending 10mm flat polyp "unsuccessful resection" in clinic. Why general anesth.? Could be CA?
How long to wait for safe colonoscopy after colon resection? Polyp in rectum, blood in stool, no stoma.
It depends on: several things including the type, size, and number of polyps. Your polyps were likely adenomas, not hyperplastic polyps, if you were told they were pre-cancerous. If you only had 1 or 2 small (<10 mm) adenomas, next colonoscopy in 5-10 years. But >2 adenomas, or >10 mm in size, almost all guidelines suggest repeat colonoscopy in 3 years. Serrated polyposis syndrome is annual exam. Hope helpful ...Read more

If everything is okay you may just need an earlier follow up.

I am 31 i had my first colonoscopy in february of this year, is there any chance that tumors or polyps can appear soon after? It was negative!
Depends...: Depends on--genetics (is there an underlying polyposis syndrome); the skill of your colonoscopist & the quality of your colon preparation; risk reduction (eat more fiber, less fat, watch your weight); predisposing factors (crohn's colitis, ulcerative colitis), age (incidence of polyps increases with age), more. That being said, a negative exam at age 31 offers opportunity for polyp prevention. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Colonoscopy is it!: For common rectal or anal problems such as rectal bleeding or pain, a full colonoscopy is commonly "routine" at age 53. Depending upon the symptoms, a simple anoscopy or rigid or flexible sigmoidoscopy might be recommended.

Colonoscopy found 2 polyps. One removed completely. Other one portion removed. Both came back benign. Can the other portion not removed be miligant?

There are higher odd: Some people are more prone to form polyps. So if you have had the polyps removed before, you are considered higher risk for more polyps and advised to undergo colonoscopy in 5 years, as opposed to 10 years for someone who did not have any polyps in their first colonoscopy. ...Read more
I had a colonoscopy and they removed 5 polyps. What is the average amount that is removed and is 5 a lot?
5 is a lot: 5 polyps found at colonoscopy is a lot but not uncommon. Most important is the type of polyp. Hyperplastic polyps are not malignant and are not the concern that we associate with adenomatous polyps which can be premalignant. Most worrisome are adenomatous polyps with atypia which should be aggressively removed. Many invasive cancers start as a benign polyp and can be prevented by polypectomy! ...Read more

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
