This is safe &available for anyone over 2, &a assumes normal GI anatomy without inflammation, stenosis, extrinsic or instrinsic obstruction.

Please tell me, could a polyp of size 1 CM come out of one's anus?

Please tell me, could a polyp of size 1 CM come out of one's anus?

Could be hemorrhoid: Any entity inside your bowel; food, stool, polyp, foreign body, hemorrhoid can and will pass rectally, so yes. Occasionally a polyp will try to pass rectally, but still being attached to the wall of the colon, can not fully detach. A colonoscopy, and/or exam with your doc are the best ways to address this problem. Be well. ...Read more

I have a polyp sized 5mm and another two sized  3mm in my gallbladder, so what shall I do and eat so that its size doesnot increases & doesnot affect?

Biliary diseases: Gallbladder polyps can remain without symptoms, are often benign, but cause concern. A low fat, controlled carbohydrate diet will benefit by minimizing stimulation of the gallbladder. Occasionally symptoms of pain, nausea and bloating persist to the point your doc refers you to a surgeon. Be well. ...Read more

Had a colonoscopy yesterday, removed four polyps,one of which had to be clip,how long dose the clip stay in?also not feeling 100% lot of rectal press.

Had a colonoscopy yesterday, removed four polyps,one of which had to be clip,how long dose the clip stay in?also not feeling 100% lot of rectal press.

Clip will pass: The clip on the stalk of a polyp will fall off after a few weeks. It will likely pass without you knowing about it. The rectal pressure after colonoscopy is due to irritation of the rectal canal from manipulating the colonoscope during the procedure. It should resolve within a day or two after the procedure. ...Read more

I had a 44 mm polyp removed 2 days ago.  I'm frightened.  Aren't polyps this size usually cancer?

Maybe yes, maybe no: The fact that the thing could be removed in its entirety without major surgery (if I understand you right) suggests either "they got it all" or "it wasn't turned bad yet." We'll see. Good luck. ...Read more

I was wondering is a 5mm adenocarcinoma (pre-cancerous rectal polyp) cause for immediate concern?

I was wondering is a 5mm adenocarcinoma (pre-cancerous rectal polyp) cause for immediate concern?

Clarify: Adenocarcinoma is not precancerous, it is cancer. 5 mm is pretty small, which makes it sound like a polyp (not adenocarcinoma). If that was the case (maybe called a tubular adenoma?) , there should be nothing to worry about. Adenocarcinoma in the colon/rectum implies invasion deeper into the colon. Please clarify the results of your biopsy with your doctor. ...Read more

Polyps: 95% of polyps less than 1 cm in size are benign. Adenomatous polyps are the pre us or polyp for colon cancer.

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. ...Read more

Microlithasis size 4.2 mm within small tumefactive sludge is mobile with calcified gb, polyp size3.7 mm adherent to anterior wall of gb. Wat to do now?

See a surgeon or GI: The fact that you have stones and sludge in your gallbladder indicates that it may be not be working well or that something in your diet is making things worse. If your gallbladder wall is calcified, that could be worrisome. I would have a surgeon review your ultrasound report and decide if removing it needed. The polyp is tiny and not a big deal - no need to worry about that. ...Read more
