Sessile Polyp Ascending Colon
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
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

Had a sessile serrated polyp in acending colon 2 years ago removed at 27 years old, if I fixed my chronic constipation could I decrease CA chance?
Flat polyps: Sessile refers to the morphology of the polyp rather than the polyp type. Sessile polyps are more flat than peduculated polyps, which grow from a stalk. Once removed, the polyp is sent to pathology to determine the polyp type (hyperplastic, adenoma, cancer, etc). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Had removed sessile polyp descending colon,reported to have vegetable matter,what bdoes this mean,thank you?
No ...: ... On the contrary. The smaller the polyp, the less likely it is to be "cancerous". Sessile just means flat (harder to find) versus pedunculated (mushroom-shaped). The precancerous type of polyps are adenomatous and serrated polyps (documented on pathology). Hyperplastic polyps in general are almost always benign and never turn into cancer. ...Read more

Why could my doc not easily remove a 1/2 inch sessile polyp on the sigmoid colon? What type of doc can do it?
Sessile = flat: Sessile polyps are flat, which makes it very difficult (but not impossible) to remove. However, they can usually be biopsied to determine if (pre)cancerous or not. This is where the gastroenterologist comes in handy. Realistically, it comes down to experience as newly minted docs may not have skills of seasoned ones. But in general, gastroenterologist is specialist to go to for colonoscopy. ...Read more
Doc found one sessile polyp (half inch) on my sigmoid colon that he couldn't remove. Is the polyp precancerous or more dangerous than others?
My wife had a colonoscopy and they found a 3cm sessile polyp in the transverse colon @ 60 cm. The polyp was removed in a piece meal fashion. What does that mean?
Morselated or: Piecemeal means not intact -- one likes to see margin, whether the polyp has typical or frank cancer cells in the stalk base. Loop/snare removal may "perforate" bowel integrity but that is preferred. Many times this is reason for open/robotic directed colectomy. Discuss plans for follow up with you GI doc. Ask about pathology report. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I recently had a colonoscopy, and the doctor completely removed a sessile polyp from my descending colon using cold forceps (size of polyp unknown). I?
My doc said he couldn't remove a 1/2 inch sessile polyp on my sigmoid colon but said he'll try again at a hospital. Would i repeat the colon cleanse?
Yes: If he is going to repeat a colonoscopy to remove the polyp, you will need to repeat the cleanse. Freeing the colon of debris will help the physician be able to identify the polyp, and issues during removal, and will make for a safer procedure. Cleanse should be repeated and make sure to ask your physician for any necessary scripts related to the cleanse. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
So my colon.Showed redundant colon and i had what they told me was a "moderate cancer risk sessile polyp" i eat healthy no ca in family im only27, why?
Had stage 1 sessile colon polyp excised. A month later the same area was biopsied, no cancer cells found, no mets in ct, CEA normal. Good idea to wait 6 months to recheck?
Discuss with GI Dr.: It depends on the size and pathology of the sessile polyp. If this polyp was already a cancer, this may need to addressed based on how much thickness of the bowel wall it invaded. Your GI surgeon is the best resource for this. Please note this may cause you problems down the line if you ignore his advice. ...Read more
