Re: Question

Well if it’s a Tubulovillous adenoma then congrats it’s not cancer, it’s juat the type of polyp. Tubulovillous Is a mixture of tubular and Villous, and Villous have a tendency to becoming cancerous. But it really depends on size and what’s “inside” So I think that since you had the flat type and the...

Re: Worried and in need of some insight...

It sound like the doctors are taking good care of you, both with the abscess and bleeding. It’s a good thing your seeing a GL soon :) I’ve had abscess on my buttcheeks around 4-5 times, lucky they where close to the surface so I did not need surgery and most of them popped all by themselves. Unfortu...

Re: Polyp pathology! Help please

No need to worry as I remember, hyperplastic polyps have don’t have a mass that can turn cancerous at all. hyperplastic polyps Can both be flat or mushroom type (like yours) I would maybe get a colonoscopy around the 5 year mark because of your age, but otherwise 10 y are standard for that kind of p...

Re: Question

I looked back, he said adenocarcinom. I.do want to mention, not sure if this is related. But, at.the same time of my first colonoscopy, I also had the test to check my esophagus and stomach. My esophagus was almost completely shut, so stretched. However I also had 6 ulcers. He showed my husband and...

Re: Feeling stressed....

First of all yes a polyp can both be tubular and sessile, tubular is the “look” and Sessile is the “type”. Sessile just means it’s flat and not on a stalk, both are perfectly normal. Here is a link to understand the report. https://www.cancer.org/treatment/understanding-your-diagnosis/tests/understa...

Re: Question

You should find another doctor ASAP, and maybe get another colonoscopy in 6-12 months. If the polyps he removed was flat type polyps they can be difficult to remove properly, that result in them growing back again. If that happens I believe surgery is in the table. But the way they treated you and t...

Re: Swollen lymph node in groin... almost 5 years NED

I also had a swollen lymph node in my groin last year, after two weeks without it growing or shrinking I went to my doc. He felt if it was “free” moveable, and said if it’s free there is nothing to worry about. Annoying enough it disappeared a couple days later. I hope it’s just caused my some minor...

Re: metamucil/psyllium Jelly in stool.

Do you take Psyllium with enough water? I should be, I’ll take one big glass with Psyllium and one without, I now had two BM’s after my jelly monster without anything unusual. So fingers crossed it’s just the Psyllium and it happen either because it was taken without any meal or because my body in ...

metamucil/psyllium Jelly in stool.

I was recommended after a period of constipation to take psyllium. I started last week, at first it worked really well, my bowel movements became soft and everything seemed normal. But then today I had a bowel movement, where the first of my stool seemed normal but then two big jelly clumps came out...

Re: Anxiety and questions about follow up and tubular adenoma

My surgeon, GI doctor and a genetic counselor all recommended a colonoscopy every year; upper GI endoscopy every two years. This is mainly because of how fast the polyps can grow (and become malignant) in Lynch positive people. Mine was bleeding for at least a year, more likely 1.5 yrs in retrospec...

Re: HUGE amounts of Watery Leakage 24 yrs old. SCARED

It's more like Water or Urine. I describe it as high in volume, low in density, and high in viscosity. Meaning it's very Watery and not thick. There's alot of it. And it comes out in a consistent and persistent pace. There is no thickness I’ve been thinking if it could actually be urin, if you migh...

Re: Anxiety and questions about follow up and tubular adenoma

Are all these data for "normal" population or Lynch syndrome folks, like me? If Lynch, then the process of polyp formation and also polyp turning to cancer can be greatly accelerated (e.g., as in 1 yr or 2). That's why the genetic information, esp. if you are young, is really important.. ...

Re: Anxiety and questions about follow up and tubular adenoma

Polyps at 5mm and under don’t often end up cancerous and tubular is the best look for it to have. Only around 10% of all Adeomas becomes cancerous that 90% that don’t. They most often make the checkup scale 1, 3 or 5 years depends on the report. They know approximately how fast it takes for a polyp...

Re: Anxiety and questions about follow up and tubular adenoma

You might consider getting tested for Lynch Syndrome, given your age.. If Lynch positive, then you want to have colonoscopies every year - polyps form and turn into cancer much faster than the rest of the population (like in 1 year or so where normally it might take 5-10 years), also upper GI scope...
