Why could my doc not easily remove a 1/2 inch sessile polyp on the sigmoid colon? What type of doc can do it?

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.

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?

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?

May need surgery: Polyps can be pedunculated or sessile. The flat ones (sessile) are much more difficult to remove intact via colonoscopy. Depending on the biospy results, the lesion may have to be removed surgically.

I had small multiple polyps in my sigmoid colon, and erosion seen at rectum, decending colon. Is there a highrisk for cancer, please help?

I had small multiple polyps in my sigmoid colon, and erosion seen at rectum, decending colon. Is there a highrisk for cancer, please help?

Depends: Risk can depend family history of polyps, cancer, number, size, and cell type of polyps, presence or absence of inflammatory bowel disease. If present, more frequent colonoscopies indicated. Low fat, hi fiber diet, containing low or no fat dairy, lots of fruit, vegs, legumes, whole grains may help. Supplements preventiodon't help as much. Talk to md ifif Aspirin or NSAID prevention is indicated 4u.

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!

What is the difference between a benign colon polyp and an adenomatous colon polyp?

Sort of the same: An adenomatous polyp is not cancer so by definition is "benign" although it harbors the potential of becoming malignant with time. Not all benign polyps are adenomatous. Some are just plain polyps with little or no malignant potential. So, adenomatous polyps are benign but not all benign polyps are adenomatous.

How long can a 5mm adenomatous colon polyp take to turn into malignant cancer?

Very slowly if at al: Colon polyps can change into cancer but usually take a long time (monthst o years).Yet it is a good idea to get it removed before it gets much bigger and there is also some uncertainty as to how long it takes to become cancerous.

Do you think I should be worried about having a adenomatous colon polyp?

Have it removed...: You should have these removed. If totally removed and no evidence of cancer, no need to further worry about that polyp. Left alone, a percentage could grow into cancer over time, so best to remove. You should then be followed as per your doctor's and acs guidelines.

How long would adenomatous colon polyp take to turn into cancer?

Depends on hx: If you have polyps the current thinking is that it takes over 5 yrs to develop a polyp and have it turn in to cancer. That is why the current reccomendation is to get a colonoscopy every 5 yrs with hx of polyps. Other genetic polyp formers such as familial adenomatous polyposis have a far more rapid cancer formation rate. Be sure to talk to your dr about the type of polyps you have and colonoscopy.

What is a adenomatous colon polyp.?

What is a adenomatous colon polyp.?

Pre-cancerous: As opposed to a hyperplastic polyp, an adenomatous polyp is the type of growth in your colon that can become cancerous over time. Variants such as villous or tubulo-villous adenomas may also describe this type of polyp. If you have these removed at colonoscopy, you will require surveillance on a regular basis.

What is the difference between colonic polyps and adenomatous polyps?

Interchangable terms: Colon polyps is a more general term referring to location (the colon). You can have polyps anywhere in the GI tract. An adenoma refers to a specific type of cell type. Specifically, glandular tissue. Importantly, adenomatous polyps have the possibility of progressing to a cancer, and can be thought of as precancerous removing the entire polyp can go a long way to decreasing progression to cancer.

Sounds: Like the colonoscopy was a "success" it resulted in a possibly "PRE-malignancy!! Follow the GI expert's advice as to your next follow-up scope! \ Congrats on having that test!!!! Hope this is helpful Dr Z

Follow-up care: Colon polyps are not normal, but it is good that you had colonoscopy to have these removed. Do you have family history of colon cancer? Even if you do not, do follow your doctor's advice for follow-up colonoscopy at no more than five years from now. Wish you good health.

In my 30s. Eat healthy diet and exercise. Have had 5 colon polyps removed between my last to colonoscopies? All benign. 1 tubular adenoma. Risk?

Real risk: Your diet and exercise have little or no impact on your likelihood of developing colon cancer, but are very much worth doing for their own sake, for the fitness satisfaction, and other health benefits. This is mostly about your genes and dumb luck. You'll want to be 'scoped fairly often and little lesions removed promptly to reduce your risk greatly.

Could my diagnosis of a colon tubular villus adenomatous polyp of 1.5 CM have a link with possible adenomayosis in my uterus?

No: They are very different processes, though they sound similar. The former could be pre malignant, the latter isn't. That's why we do colonoscopies, so we can remove polyps early on- as in your case. That was very wise from your part.

How quickly can a colon polyp grow?

How quickly can a colon polyp grow?

Some grow quickly.: I personally have a family history of colon cancer and had a normal colonoscopy only 2 years before I had a bleeding episode discovered to be from a cancer from a polyp in my cecum. 2 years is a short time to go from no sign of anything to developing a polyp, to having it become a cancer.
