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.

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

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
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
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
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
