39y/o, had 2 polpys removed (sigmond & descending, villous adenoma w/high grade dysplasia). Will I get colon cancer even though 2 polyps were removed?

39y/o, had 2 polpys removed (sigmond & descending, villous adenoma w/high grade dysplasia). Will I get colon cancer even though 2 polyps were removed?

Not sure if: Family history or leeding led to your colonoscopy, but it showed its value. You are not predestined to get invasive cancer, but the findings warrant follow up to snip dangerous polyps before they invade, and gain access to nodes and blood steam. Your colonoscopist can tell you schedule for surveillance. ...Read more

Had a tubervillous removed in colon w/high grade dysplasia. Does that mean it always would turn into cancer. What is next step in treatment process?

No, but: Risk is higher. Nothing in medicine is sure. It also means you'll be invited back for more regular looks. The standard is once a decade after 50, but ask what your schedule will be with this development. ...Read more

Wat percentage of ppl with UC get colon dysplasia and how to prevent it? I have mild left sided UC, diagnosis 2 yrs ago. I'm off the meds, remission

It varies.: The number of people who develop dysplasia in UC varies, depending on the extent of colon involvement, its severity, and the duration of the colitis. The general recommendation is to get checked out if your colitis extends beyond the sigmoid colon and has been present for eight or more years. It is a good sign that you are in remission. Be diligent in your treatment and follow-up. Good luck. ...Read more

28 year-old woman was found during laparoscopy for endometriosis to have segmental areas of colon missing its musculature, and wonders about pro.....?

Segmental lack muscl: Segmental absence of colonic musculature is congenital and is usually diagnosed in childhood. It can be associated with constipation and also spontaneous perforation which is when it is diagnosed. Would follow up with colon surgeon, regarding the risk for perforation and whether prophylactic removal is warranted. ...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

Why am I bleeding during and after sex? I was treated for severe dysplasia 2 years ago

Why am I bleeding during and after sex? I was treated for severe dysplasia 2 years ago

Several reasons: This may be as simple as a vaginal infection or trauma to the cervix during intercourse making it bleed a little. However, I once diagnosed cervical cancer in a 27 year old woman with this exact same symptom. See your doctor & make sure you are following up on your dysplasia. There is a 30% recurrence rate for dysplasia of the cervix. ...Read more

How long does it take for severe dysplasia to progress to cervical cancer if not all abnormal cells are found and removed?

Varies: It could be 5-10 years or it could resolve on its own depending on cause of the dysplasia and risk factors. Work on eliminating risks like smoking, synthetic hormones (oc's), multiple partners. Work on improving immune system with weight loss, organic chemical free diet, exercise, and immune boosting supplements. ...Read more

In july 2013 I had a leep procedure due to my severe dysplasia of my ladie parts, I was about 107lbs then. I now weigh 101lbs and eat every 3hours?

No relation to LEEP: The leep should have no influence on either your appetite or your weight. If you are anxious about the diagnosis, this could be causing some loss of appetite. I would suggest you follow up with your doctor to make sure there are no other medical problems such as problems with your blood sugar or your thyroid gland. ...Read more

I have cin3 severe dysplasia. I am going in to have l.E.E.P done. I am scared its cancer because I am having abdomal and bowel pain.?

Not related: It is unlikely that your abdominal and bowel pain is related to your current diagnosis. Pain related to the abdomen and bowel would indicate more advanced cancer that would have been diagnosed with your initial papsmear. I would ask your physician. ...Read more

If my biopsy came back with severe dysplasia level 3, does it mean that I have cervical cancer?

If I had an abnormal pap with severe dysplasia level 3, does it mean that I have cervical cancer?

If I had an abnormal pap with severe dysplasia level 3, does it mean that I have cervical cancer?

Not necessarily.: This is an old term that correlates with what is now known as cin3 (or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, grade 3), which is not technically cervical cancer but rather a precursor. Some can spontaneously regress, but some can progress to frank cancer. As such, treatment options can include anything from doing nothing to actually removing the offending lesion (s). ...Read more

Can I get cervical cancer in within a year of my leep for severe dysplasia?

Can I get cervical cancer in within a year of my leep for severe dysplasia?

Probably not: Cervical cancer is rare at your age (23), and LEEP was intended to remove dysplastic pre-cancer tissue, so whatever low risk there was probably is now gone. However, your doctor probably advised follow-up exams and testing to assure there is no recurrence. Follow that advice, or contact the doctor's office if uncertain about it. Also ask about vaccination against HPV to further reduce future risk. ...Read more

My wife is diagnosed with severe dysplasia/c3. Am I safe to have sex with her? How will I know if I am already infected with hpv?

My wife is diagnosed with severe dysplasia/c3. Am I safe to have sex with her? How will I know if I am already infected with hpv?

You are safe to have: Sex with her in that the evolution from her contact with the virus to this level of abnormality took about 10 years. You likely already carry the virus. It doesn't have the same effects in men in that penile cancer is rare. Having her issue treated will resolve her problem, it's then a matter of moving on. If you have another partner its another issue but male screening not a recommendation. ...Read more

Can I develop cervical cancer in a year? I had a leep a year ago for severe dysplasia I have my appointment next week... Really scared im 23.

Severe Dysplasia: Linda the reason they took the tissue out is it had the chance of turning into cancer, I'm almost positive that they wanted you to come back in 6 months to get repeat testing, probably a colposcopy. This is because they wanted to make sure everything was ok. So it has been a year now, there is no sense being so scared. You need to get the exam and testing. Chances are it will not be cancer! ...Read more

I was Diagnosed with Severe Dysplasia (CIN3)involving ectocervical squamous mucosa and fragments of benign endocervical glandular epithelium.?

Cervical Cancer: CIN3 is a high risk precursor to cervical cancer and needs to be treated and followed up. Local procedures like LEEP or cone biopsy are important to exclude possible occult invasion. Follow-up following those with visual exam, pap and HPV testing to exclude recurrence or residual are vital. Visual exam to exclude HPV disease of vagina or vulva are also important. ...Read more

Can HPV 16 go away on its own? Had leep for severe dysplasia. Recent pap showed borderline changes and HPV 16 again. (pap was 2 mnths ago, leep year

Can HPV 16 go away on its own? Had leep for severe dysplasia. Recent pap showed borderline changes and HPV 16 again. (pap was 2 mnths ago, leep year

No, it can't.: Unfortunately, once you get hpv type 16 or other, it can't get out of your system. That's why pap smears are done every year on women who are sexually active or have reached 18 years of age. It's also why vaccination has been developed. So it's a good idea to keep getting your paps and biopsies if needed. ...Read more

Had leep procedure 2008. Severe dysplasia. Papa have been normal since. Married. How soon can it come back if at all? Or turn into cancer?

Keep a watch on it: Congratulations both on your marriage and on your having survived a close call with premalignancy. While it is most likely that you will not have further problems, you very much need to keep a watch on it -- regular follow-up with your physician. The protocols for this are laid out very carefully to allow safe time, but be sure not to get behind. ...Read more

Had severe dysplasia (had leep), now breakthough bleeding. Any connection with precancerous cells of the uterus and cervical dysplasia?

It is unlikely that: Your irregular bleeding is related to the leep or utrine cancer unless the leep was recently done and u r bleeding from there. Cervical cancer and uterine cancer are seperate phenomenon, though cervical cancer can extend into the uterus. Depending on age, uterine cancer is low on the list as a cause of the bleeding but see your doc if older than 35, may need endometrial biopsy just 2 b sure? ...Read more

Yes: You may request a hysterectomy, and indeed that may be the best option for your, however it is important first to get a full gyn evaluation. First it is important to have a colposcopy to rule out cancer. Second it is important to get an ultrasound and some lab work to determine the cause of the irregular periods and pain. There may be another solution after that evaluation. ...Read more

Why is the reccurence of colon cancer in T4 high?

Why is the reccurence of colon cancer in T4 high?

Larger tumor: A T4 tumor is simply a tumor that has invaded more deeply through the colon wall than other tumors (t1 - t3). T4 tumors invade all the way through the colon wall and may even invade other structures. Because the tumor has gotten through the colon wall, it is more likely to have deposited cells in other tissues making recurrence more likely. ...Read more
