Had a tubulovillous adenoma w/hgd removed via right-hemicoloectomy. Why does a repeat colonoscopy have to be done in a year if polyps grow slow?

Had a tubulovillous adenoma w/hgd removed via right-hemicoloectomy.  Why does a repeat colonoscopy have to be done  in a year if polyps grow slow?

One year is correct: Colon cancer develops from a polyp with high grade dysplasia. A history of dysplastic polyps puts you at high risk of forming new polyps and the pace of growth is uncertain, especially in a young age group. There are clear guidelines put out by the american cancer society on the suggested followup for colon polyps. If your next colonscopy shows no polyps, they will extend the time interval. ...Read more

Why did they do a colonoscopy on you in the first place at age 22? You should consult with the gastroenterologist who did your previous procedures to evaluate the best timing. Good luck. ...Read more

I am highly susceptible to colon polyps & at 30 had a hgd adenoma removed, is a high or low fibre diet best for me to reduce frequency of the polyps?

I am highly susceptible to colon polyps & at 30 had a hgd adenoma removed, is a high or low fibre diet best for me to reduce frequency of the polyps?

More complex...: Than that. In general, high fiber diet (not simply bran or fiber supplements) may be helpful ( conflicting data). Adequate calcium, especially from dairy (low fat/no fat) may be helpful. Low sat fat (low meat, especially processed/sausage type) may be helpful. Aspirin or nsaids may be helpful. Need to discuss your particulars, including fam hx, polyp hx, w/ md. Follow surveillance scopes. ...Read more
