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

Recommendations are that if you have adenomas five to ten years. Normal ten years. two small adenomas should not change this UNLESS you have risk factors such as a positive family history.
In your case I think it reasonable and consistent with the guideliines to repeat in five years. ...Read more

Excess of Hormones: If the adrenal gland tumor/adenoma is producing excess of hormones, then it is called functional.

What do you suggest if my husband has a villous adenoma the size of a strawberry. how worried should I be?
Usually convert: When a villous adenoma is detected in a male who is probably over 50 yrs. of age you are dealing with a notorious premalignant cancer of bowel which is where I assume the lesion is present. Virtually every one is resected to prevent the development of colon Ca. Wide resection I assume would be attempted by scope if possible, would be curiative. ...Read more

If it's small (< 1 cm) and is non-functioning, you might not need to do anything to it except follow it with imaging studies (MRI) to make sure it doesn't grow in the future. ...Read more
