Weird painish, in chest pain in entire upper abdomen ultrasound found polyps on gallbladder nothin else. Always tired lots of anxiety any ideas?

STOP NSAIDS!: Please stop advil (ibuprofen) and Ibuprofen unless there is a reason you must continue. These can irritate your stomach and esophagus. Have you tried reflux meds yet? Need more history on your pain - how long, what is it like, what makes it better, what makes it worse. Lab results? Vital signs?

Dad had tubular adenoma polyp removed at age 40. Heridatry? Symptoms of this?

Premalignant: Tubular adenomas can give rise to cancer if left in place, and having had one is a marker that he may get more. This does tend to run in the family. You'd do well to get occasional colonoscopies as health maintenance for yoruself. He should also continue to be checked.

What is cervical polyps and what are the symptoms and causes? And how is it treated? I have infrequent bleeding and I think I have cervical polyps!

Removal: Cerivcal polyps are almost always benign, but we still recommend their removal. They are easy for a gynecologist to remove, so be sure to see a doctor so the polyp can be sent to a pathologist and confirm the bleeding isn't pre-cancer or cancer. The symptoms are most commonly bleeding after intercourse, or heavy bleeding or intermittant breakthrough bleeding. We don't know why they form.

Are there symptoms of colon polyps?

Are there symptoms of colon polyps?

Not typically: On occasion, polyps may infarct, twist on their stalk, bleed, or secrete (villous tumors of the rectum) with resulting "diarrhea." however, most polyps & colon cancers are identified (hopefully) before symptoms develop. Early detection at a smaller polyp size means higher cure rates, lower risk of malignant transformation or invasion, & improved survival before cancer develops. Get a colonoscopy!

Hoarse voice 7 weeks no polyps or masses and no other symptoms?

Hoarseness: Hoarse voice can have many causes. At time it can persist after a cold. If hoarseness persists or last longer than 2-3 months then you should see your doctor to determine if there are other causes. Common causes of hoarseness may include allergy, acid reflux, voice abuse. If you are a voice professional (singer, frequent speaker) or smoker then ENT evaluation is essential.

Diagnosed with a polyp on cervix which has been bleeding for a month solid. I have to wait 2 months to be removed. Can symptoms escalate?

Diagnosed with a polyp on cervix which has been bleeding for a month solid. I have to wait 2 months to be removed. Can symptoms escalate?

Beeding: Cervical polyps cause irregular bleeding but not much else. 2 months seems like a long time to wait for something as easy as a poly removal. Unless it is really big most can be removed in the office in seconds. Don't be afraid to ask for an earlier appointment.

What are the symptoms of nose polyps and can 13 year old girls get them?

What are the symptoms of nose polyps and can 13 year old girls get them?

Cystic Fibrosis?: The symptoms of nasal polyps vary depending on size. Usually, there is nasal drainage, post-nasal drainage, nasal obstruction, loss of sense of smell and of course visualization of the polyps with a scope. Nasal polyposis is very rare in a 13 year old and I would urge you to rule out cystic fibrosis. Finally, who made this diagnosis? If it has not been made by a specialist, I would not worry.
