No alcohol forever!:
Alcohol is a poison that never did anybody any good, ever, so stay away from it.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age.

I;m having abdominal pain that is moving around, had a colonoscopy done with 1 small polyp removed it is very dull pain, comes and goes?
I had a colonoscopy Cuz of nausea, bloating, cramping, diarreah. Small polyp found, awaiting biopsie. What r all the diff colon diseases?
Too big a topic: Can't answer "all the colon diseases" in this small field. The large categories are infectious, malignant, inflammatory, drug-induced, and inherited. The biopsy result of your polyp will tell you what kind it is and therefore what category it falls into. Someone your age usually has benign (non-cancerous) polyps that are found incidentally while a colonoscopy is being done for other symptoms.
Chronic epigastric pain. EEG = ulcers, colonoscopy = polyps (removed), ultrasound clear, barium swallow&small bowel normal. Still awful pain! What now?
Occasional blood in stool, nausea, bloating, fullness, and fatigue. Hida 83%, colonoscopy polyp normal, small hepatic liver cyst. Why still symptoms?
It depends on: Several things including the type, size, and number of polyps. Your polyps were likely adenomas, not hyperplastic polyps, if you were told they were pre-cancerous. If you only had 1 or 2 small (<10 mm) adenomas, next colonoscopy in 5-10 years. But >2 adenomas, or >10 mm in size, almost all guidelines suggest repeat colonoscopy in 3 years. Serrated polyposis syndrome is annual exam. Hope helpful
Polyposis: Hi, Thank you for your question. That is a high number but usually polypsosis syndromes have 100's of polyps. If everything is okay you may just need an earlier follow up. Hope that helps. Contact me if you have any other questions :-) Dr. M
I have recently had a colonoscopy and there weren't any biopsies or polyps taken. I haven't received any info yet. What could this mean?
No news...: ...Is usually good news, but I would call the doctors office to verify there wasn't a miscommunication problem and request a copy of the report or a follow-up appointment with your md to review the results and plans for follow-up.See 1 more doctor answer
I am 31 I had my first colonoscopy in february of this year, is there any chance that tumors or polyps can appear soon after? It was negative!
Depends...: Depends on--genetics (is there an underlying polyposis syndrome); the skill of your colonoscopist & the quality of your colon preparation; risk reduction (eat more fiber, less fat, watch your weight); predisposing factors (crohn's colitis, ulcerative colitis), age (incidence of polyps increases with age), more. That being said, a negative exam at age 31 offers opportunity for polyp prevention.See 3 more doctor answers
Which tests are considered "routine" when trying to diagnose rectal and anal problems? I have had a colonoscopy, I had a few polyps and inter. Hemmorh
Colonoscopy is it!: For common rectal or anal problems such as rectal bleeding or pain, a full colonoscopy is commonly "routine" at age 53. Depending upon the symptoms, a simple anoscopy or rigid or flexible sigmoidoscopy might be recommended. Importantly' rectal bleeding should never be attributed to hemorrhoids without an endoscopic exam to document hemorrhoids or, more importantly, rule out a malignancy.See 1 more doctor answer
Can my husband have pizza tonight after a colonoscopy and removal of 5 polyps this morning? They advised a soft diet for today but did not specify wh
Probably a slice or: ...two shouldn't be a problem. Would avoid an accompanying soda however to minimize additional bloat.
Colonoscopy found 2 polyps. One removed completely. Other one portion removed. Both came back benign. Can the other portion not removed be miligant?
Technically yes: Technically it could, but one can estimate those chances by looking in more detail of your pathology report. If they both came back benign, that risk is extremely low. Ask your gastroenterologist for more details.See 1 more doctor answer
