Colonoscopy results-tubular adenoma colon polyp, diverticulosis&hemorrhoids. I was told prep not complete-should I repeat colonoscopy sooner than 3yr?
Sigmoidoscopy is the use of a flexible fiberoptic camera or specially designed scope to examine the inside of the colon. Because the procedure only examines the left side of the colon (in an area called the sigmoid), it is termed sigmoidoscopy. This is to differentiate it from a colonoscopy, where the entire right and left side of the colon is examined. A sigmoidoscopy ...Read more

Narrow stools: Narrow stools are not necessarily a sign of colon cancer and nay be seen with scarring of the colon from prior episodes of diverticulitis. A negative sigmoidoscopy is reassuring in making cancer unlikely but a gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. ...Read more

Colon cancer age 30?? RUQ pain, fecal occult test negative- CT- Normal- (GI tract WNL no obstruction or perforation) should I get colonoscopy for pain
Probably: Colon cancer is unlikely in your age group, but other GI and colon diseases can also cause such symptoms. Have you had your gallbladder evaluated? Remember, colon cancer has minimal symptoms and CT is NOT a great test for it. In sum though low yield I would likely recommend colonoscopy to you based on what I've read. ...Read more
Probably not, but...: Melena is dark stools stained with denatured blood, but all dark stool is not melena. False positive hemoccult results can occur based on diet ; stool additives.

This must be treated as if it were colon cancer, and surgically removed asap and histology to confirm either benign or malignant with appropriate follow up thanks ...Read more
Had endoscopy that showed increase intraepithelial lymphocytes in duodeum. 6 months later on repeat endoscopy, it was normal.No symptoms at all.Celiac?
Can't say: Lymphocytes in duodenum can occur with celiac, but there are many causes. If you eliminated 100% of the gluten in your diet during the 6 months, then you may indeed have some sensitivity to gluten. On the other hand, it could be unrelated and coincidental, if you are better after going gluten free, one way to confirm is to see what happens if you eat gluten again. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
