Diminutive Polyp In The Transverse Colon
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If a patient has a tumor in the transverse colon, and a pre-cancerous polyp in the ascending colon, would both colon sections need to be resected?
It depends.: If the gastroenterologist is fairly certain that the precancerous polyp was removed completely, and the pathology results confirm that, then the ascending colon would not need to be resected. Depending on the results of the local lymph nodes, the surgeon might be able to get by with resecting just the transverse colon. Good luck. ...Read more
The polyp was flat and the doctor said he thought he got most of it out but he was not sure. Are polyps in the transverse colon more likely to be cancerous.
No, however...: To the best of my knowledge polyps in the transverse colon have no greater risk of becoming cancerous than in other locations. Some varieties (adenomatous vs. Hyperplastic) are more likely to become cancerous. I'm sure your polyp will be checked for signs it was precancerous. Your doc will likely do another colonoscopy in about 3 years so if any was left it can be removed at that time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
