Re: Colon rectal cancer found during routine colonoscopy

Thank you, O Stoma Mia , You perfectly described what happened in my case. However I had no input in this process except my concent for "prophylactic" laparoscopic surgery. I just followed the flow. Back there I had no desire neither to Google nor even to read my own reports. I blindly fol...

Re: cecal mass

Could you please post a complete report.
In this case you would get a more specific feedback.

Caecum location is better than rectal, but worse than transverse. ;)

Re: Colon rectal cancer found during routine colonoscopy

Can I not assume that the surgeon will refer me to less invasive treatment if that is in fact what can fix my issue? It’s hard to believe that surgeons don’t work together with GI doctors to decide which least invasive procedure is needed to fix problem Where do you live? Is it US or Canada? A surg...

Re: Colon rectal cancer found during routine colonoscopy

Utwo Do you have any idea how I could locate a highly skilled gastroenterologist or colonoscopist who may be able to do such a surgery for me? My surgeon performed my first colonoscopy and was not confident to remove my sessile polyp. So she referred me to GI guy who specialized in colonoscopy star...

Re: Colon rectal cancer found during routine colonoscopy

The doctor found a polyp that he said measured 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm and he said it was 13 cm from the end of my colon. ... My greatest concern is the radiation and chemo because I’m very sensitive to any type of drug especially at my age. Sometimes (depending on a location of a tumor) it's possible to r...

Re: Finally figured out why I got Colon Cancer

So how does a guy who does not smoke, maybe drinks one beer a year, who cycles over a thousand miles a summer and plays hockey in the winter get diagnosed with colorectal cancer? How does a guy with absolutely no family history of cancer get to hear those three dreaded words “you have cancer”? ... ...

Re: cauliflower stalk/ mushroom mass, 5cm: How to proceed?

It is currently scheduled for Thursday with the same GI. Still have concerns about whether a GI should be doing it vs. a colorectal surgeon. Also have concerns about whether I need a CT before or not? I am hoping to squeeze in a second opinion before doing the polypectomy on THursday. Thanks. CT sc...

Re: New member seeking support

Trevor,

What kind of polyp do you have?
Is it pedunculated or sessile?
Why hasn't it been removed during colonoscopy?
What are your next steps?

Welcome on board and good luck!

Fluctuating fever may be a sign of an infection or a leak.
Don't tolerate it. Push them to properly diagnose a cause of this fever.

Re: cauliflower stalk/ mushroom mass, 5cm: How to proceed?

Gastroentologist is the best person to "snare" (the word he used) the cauliflower stalk polyp and remove it In addition to a camera, a scope also has a wire snare that is used to cut polyps. Then they would place polyp or its pieces into a special pouch to get it outside. I am not sure ho...
