Re: Polyp worries

Sorry you're going through all of this... I would try not to panic until you get the full colonoscopy, and talk to your doctors more. I am a 35 year old female. I was seeing blood & mucous in my stool for a while and had a colonoscopy in Dec. 2014. My GI doctor found a 1.2 cm tubulovillous adeno...

Re: Do you think I might have colon cancer?

I understand your concern, but try not to panic until you get a colonoscopy & see a GI specialist. Here in the U.S. depending on what type of insurance you have, sometimes you see your family doctor first, and then are referred to a GI specialist. Other times you can just call a specialist and s...

Re: Do you think I might have colon cancer?

Get a colonoscopy by a GI specialist. I am 35/F. I was seeing blood & mucous in my stool for over a year. I saw a GI specialist about it in 2014, & he recommended a colonoscopy. During the colonoscopy, he found I had hemorrhoids from a previous childbirth, that I had diverticulosis, and a 1....

Re: 24 yrs. old with precancerous polyp.

Hey there Colon Club, I'm just a little anxious and needed to chat with some people that know what I'm talking about. I recently went in for a colonoscopy because I had frequent rectal bleeding, mucus-filled stools, persistent diarrhea, intestinal cramping, and urgent bowel movements that had been ...

Re: Biopsy Back, Not Out of the Woods

I was 46 and quite ill when mine were discovered. Had much weight loss and poor appetite. They found both villious and tubulovillious. I had scopes every year until 3 years ago. (57 now) Polyps were removed each time until the last scope so they let me wait three years. Bad mistake. With your age I...

Re: Biopsy Back, Not Out of the Woods

I am so sorry. I am in the same situation as I have a large mass in my ascending colon. I was told years ago that the genetic alteration was already in that location. Now I have a mass. So as I wait for my surgery I take no comfort from the superficial biopsy. The thing I can tell you is that an in...

Re: What were your symptoms like before you were diagnosed?

Have you been diagnosed with colon cancer yet? I hope not, 19 is so young... I do not have colon cancer myself, but will have to be screened for it every several years for the rest of my life though. I am 35/F. I was having blood in my stool for about a year and a half on and off, plus suffering wit...

Re: the prep is not that bad

I know this post is a little old, but just wanted to say that is great news rangerlady! I am 35 years old. I had a 1.2 cm tubulovillous adenoma removed by colonoscopy last year. It was fortunately benign, but I now have to have more frequent scopes. When is your next scope scheduled? Mine is schedul...

Re: 1 colon polyp removed

I had one polyp removed last December. I was 34 at the time. It was a 1.2 cm tubulovillous adenoma polyp (rare for my age). It wasn't cancer, but was the type of polyp that can become cancer if not removed. The doctor got it out, and I am going to have a repeat colonoscopy next December. The biopsy ...
