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
The polyp was flat and the doctor said he thought he got most of it out but he was not sure. Are polyps in the transverse colon more likely to be cancerous.
No, however...: To the best of my knowledge polyps in the transverse colon have no greater risk of becoming cancerous than in other locations. Some varieties (adenomatous vs. Hyperplastic) are more likely to become cancerous. I'm sure your polyp will be checked for signs it was precancerous. Your doc will likely do another colonoscopy in about 3 years so if any was left it can be removed at that time. ...Read more

6mm attached sessile polyp ( in descending colon),2-5mm rectum,diminutive polyps.haven't gotten my results back yet from 7/2 should I be concerened?
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

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 more

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
