I am in my early twenties and had a 3 cm polyp removed from my colon a year ago. I have been re-colonoscpoed 6 months after that and thankfully everything looks alright.
My question now is i have an increasingly annoying pain to the left side of my belly button. If i press on it i feel that there is a bump inside (compared to the same position on the right side of my belly button). I am not bleeding anymore but my bowels are not regular and dont look right.
Any ideas what it might be? Is it serious? Does it have a connection with the polyp taken out?
Thank you very much for your response as i am geting a bit worried
According to the symptoms you describe (âpain and feeling something on the left side of the belly buttonâ), it is impossible to recommend possible diagnoses without a physical examination and an abdominal ultrasound. Whatever it is, it doesnât seem likely to be connected with the removed polyp from the colon because polyps in the colon do not manifest with pain but with rectal bleeding... or are without any symptoms.
