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.

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?

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

Ascending colon pain age 21 change in bowel habits and no anemia went to the er three times and everything clear.Scared it might be Colon cancer.

Ascending colon pain age 21 change in bowel habits and no anemia went to the er three times and everything clear.Scared it might be Colon cancer.

See below:: Agree with Dr. KATAKKAR. It is unlikely that you have colon cancer. However, the issue is not suitable for ER. You need to see your primary care provider and let her/him decide if a referral to a gastroenterologist is warranted. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Mild discomfort in the abdomen after having a tranverse colon polyp removed and clamped? Is this normal. Dr said no mri's for 6 weeks cuz of the clamp

Maybe: When was your polyp removed? The polyp removal will not cause pain. The air from the colonoscopy will, but that should resolved within the 6 to 12 hours after the procedure. If your pain worsens, see your doctor or go to the ED. If you have any bleeding - Go to the ED. ...Read more

Doctor found a polyp in my bowel, I'm 26 they took it out. No Colon CA in family? They didn't find any inflammation disease, how could I have this?

Doctor found a polyp in my bowel, I'm 26 they took it out. No Colon CA in family? They didn't find any inflammation disease, how could I have this?

Any adenoma?: Sometimes there are normal findings identified at colonoscopy that can form a small bump resembling a polyp. These will often be removed to make sure they are not a precancerous polyp. If the pathology report does not mention an adenoma or hyperplastic polyp, it may not be a true polyp at all. You can follow up with your doctor regarding the results of the biopsy. ...Read more
