Low: You need another colonoscopy in 5 years based on the size and type of adenoma you describe, to make sure others do not develop that are larger or different in type. Not smoking and no family history are great factors in your favor. ...Read more

I am only 26 had a colonoscopy that showed a sessile serrated adenoma- how can this be?! I don't smoke/drink no colon ca in history now im really scared

Don't be scared: Since it was a benign polyp and you don't have a strong family history, you just need to follow your colonoscopist's recommended surveillance interval for your next colonoscopy. You are in good hands now that you have affiliated yourself with an endoscopist. Good luck! ...Read more

27/f constipation no family of colon ca had chronic constipation colonoscopy done showed sessile serrated adenoma so scared! Why? Am I going to get ca

Not anymore: Polyps are benign if removed early like you have done. Only if you neglect them and let them grow, they can change into cancer. You should be fine, but your doctor would likely advise you to have repeat colonoscopy every 5 years or at least every 10 years because there is small risk of developing new polyps. But there is no reason to worry about cancer as long as you are having colonoscopy as advi. ...Read more

I'm 38 female, smoker, have celiac disease but do not stick to diet, I've had one colonoscopy, found ONE sessile serrated polyp 9mm, should I worry?

Worry is relative!: If they never told you, you need to be aware of a fact. Every time someone with celiac disease consumes gluten, their immune system creates new antibodies that attack various tissues in the body. Your symptoms may be readily apparent or subtle, but they will eventually lead to more problems. It is hard enough to remain gluten free when you try, since it can be found in unexpected items. ...Read more

Pituitary cells may: Increase in number due to physiological (normal function) or pathological (disease) causes. Pituitary cell proliferation can be influenced by the releasing hormones governing other glands: adrenal, thyroid, gonads as well as growth hormone. The loss of inhibitory hormones for these glands can also contribute. You need a careful evaluation and work-up from a glandular/endocrine specialist. ...Read more
