Hi. I had a colonoscopy and they found 3 paris 2a polyps in my transverse colon. What are the chances they are malignant?
Pathology: Most polyps are not malignant. But the good news is you do NOT have to leave it to chance. Once your polyps make to the pathology lab they will tell you FOR SURE whether they are malignant or benign ...Read more
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 more

Depends: Fundamental rule once detected must be removed as soon as possible, if general condition permits, . Some polyps like villous adenomas already will have atypical changes or early cancer, if larger than 2 cm will have 40% chance, other types may take months to couple of years for malignant transformation, no one will wait and see. Early colon cancer is curable, removal of polyp will prevent ca. ...Read more
Increased risk?: It is now accepted that adenomatous colon polyps under the right conditions will progress to cancer if present for 5-10 years. However not all polyps will turn into cancer as some will slough off if you have had hyperplastic polyps you risks are not increased. If you had adenomatous polyps then you are at increased risks and should be followed by doctor. ...Read more

A ascending colon polyp worse then anywhere else in the colon. How can I prevent more. High grade removed in may, surgically. When do I need next scope?
Not sure of your: Question but a precancerous polyp regardless of the location in the colon is concern for futue polyp/cancer development especially if high grade dysplasia was present. Follow your surgeon's or GI doctors advice on follow up colonoscopy, but I usually recommend a colonoscopy 1 year after surgery. ...Read more
Some grow quickly.: I personally have a family history of colon cancer and had a normal colonoscopy only 2 years before I had a bleeding episode discovered to be from a cancer from a polyp in my cecum. 2 years is a short time to go from no sign of anything to developing a polyp, to having it become a cancer. ...Read more
Colon Polyp: A polyp in the colon is not a disease. A polyp is a growth on the surface of the lining of the colon. Some can lead to cancer and some are benign. They usually do not cause symptoms unless they get big. They are removed at colonoscopy to make sure they are not pre-cancerous. You are more likely to get them if you eat fatty foods, smoke, drink alcohol, don't exercise, or obese. ...Read more

Your doctor will exp: I am sure your doctor would be happy to explain. Surgical removal means an operation to remove the polyp. There are two types of operation: open surgery or laparoscopic surgery (this one is a mini operation with smaller cuts as compared to open surgery which is a bigger cut). But talk it over with your surgeon. ...Read more
Pre-cancerous: As opposed to a hyperplastic polyp, an adenomatous polyp is the type of growth in your colon that can become cancerous over time. Variants such as villous or tubulo-villous adenomas may also describe this type of polyp. If you have these removed at colonoscopy, you will require surveillance on a regular basis. ...Read more
Sort of the same: An adenomatous polyp is not cancer so by definition is "benign" although it harbors the potential of becoming malignant with time. Not all benign polyps are adenomatous. Some are just plain polyps with little or no malignant potential. So, adenomatous polyps are benign but not all benign polyps are adenomatous. ...Read more
