I have many polyps and a flat polyp on the right side of my colon. Does that mean I have cancer?

Not necessarily: ...As some polyps do not develop into cancer. That said, if you have "many" polyps, it may be to your benefit to visit a specialist in cancer genetics. Some folks carry inherited traits (genes) that lead to polyposis and different kinds of cancers. Talk to your pcp or gastroenterologist about this. ...Read more

Can i treat nasal polyps without surgery?

Can i treat nasal polyps without surgery?

Nasal polyps: Sometimes. I have often had success avoiding surgery by treating polyps with short periods of steroids, then placing patients on a steroid nasal spray to diminish recurrence. This does not work with everyone, in which case surgery may be needed. Even then, i tell patients to think of surgery as a "haircut, " since polyps have a tendency to recur. www.mainlineent.com. ...Read more

Have same gallbladder polyps for 6 years in those years one grew from 4 mm to 6.5 and I am opting for removal how likely would this be gallbladder cancer I am 46?

Low probability: Gallbladder polyps are typically stones that are forming in the wall of the gallbladder. Gallbladder cancer is very rare. I would recommend not worrying too much about the possibility of gallbladder cancer. You say you are scheduled to have your gallbladder removed. They will test the gallbladder after it is removed. The pathologist will give you a report. ...Read more
