Do all colon cancers start as polyps? I just had a large sessile polyp removed from my right colon. I am a 41 year old female. I was discharged with directions that all first degree family members age 40 or over should be screened for colon cancer. I am waiting for the biopsy results. Also, aren't I a little young to have a large colon polyp? Thanks.

Ascending Colon
I just read that 100% of the time polyps cannot be detected in the ascending (right) colon. Is this true? If so, why not? Thanks.

Colon Polyps
You are never too young for colon polyps. I am 28 years old and last year was diagnosed with Pre cancerous polyps. Very scary. After having this it makes me feel like people should be going to get colonoscopies younger than 50. If I did not have my colonoscopy, I would have had cancer in a few years.

Well I am 24 years old and had a colonoscopy yesterday.. I had it done because my body isnt absorbing IRON and Vitamin B, so the physician recommended he do a colonoscopy and gastroscopy to see if he could find anything and lucky he did as he found 2 large polyps.... and I have no family history of bowel cancer, so I dont understand where it has come from. I am currently waiting for the results from pathology. Very Scared as I dont know what to expect. Sad

Hi Tigeress87,

The polyps they found in me were quite large one was a 10mm sessile polyp and they were fine. I mean if they were sitting there for another couple of years they would have started to change but early detection is prevention. I know your 44years old and I am 24 but this doesnt matter as if you had something seriously wrong with you ( cancer) especially in the colon, you would have had plenty of warning signs ( blood in stools) and lots of it. I know its scary and you have every right to be worried but you need to keep positive... and if you happen to get the bad news, at least you then get to deal with it and treat it. Im no doctor but I know my physician said to me that usually cancerous polyps reach a size of 10mm or more.... judging on the size of your polyp, they would have caught it in time before any cell change. Let me know how you go..... good luck!!!! Smile

Too Radical of Treatment?
A 5CM mass was found in my ascending colon, the biopsies came back clear but my gastro doctor wants to remove the ascending colon all the way to the sigmoid colon. Both of my parents have had benign polyps but no cancer.....this approach seems very aggressive....thoughts?

Ummmm yeah!! get a second opinion and fast or you will end up with a colostomy bag!! why on earth would a Physician want to remove your ENTIRE colon for a 5mm mass in your Acending colon??? Why would he just not remove the mass plus addional tissue to be sure the margins are clear then reconnect?? Granted you will have a short Acending colon, but at least you will HAVE a colon!! Seriously .. I hope that you have gotten a second opinion before you let that surgeon go anywhere near you!

colon polyps
Had 4 polyps in colon and only 43, this is scary. Doctor said they looked okay but I will get the biopsies back in two weeks. Can the doctors usually tell if a polyps is cancer or not.

hi my son now 7 years old had a large bowel polyp removed when he was 4 years old after 3 years of constant blood in his stools he had cameras in him a few times then the last time they went in with camera they used a new one that was one inch longer than previous cameras and they found it and removed it then it was the two week wait for the results which was all clear they said they can return but unlikly cause he young.and discharged him with no follow up appointments. he has had no probs for nearly 3 years till recently he complaining of tummy ache and started having mucus and blood in poo again there is no family history of bowel polyps. we went doctors today and have handed in a poo sample doctor thinks he might have to be refered again. i know it sounds disgusting but i took photos of his bloody poo to show doctors before and thats when they took it more seriously. has any one had any return how did it go i am worried sick for my little boy

I am 28 years old, over the past 6 years I have learned polyps dont care how old you are, if they are going to grow they will. When I was 22 I had over 20 removed. On thursday I went for another colonoscopy and had an 8mm sessile in the cecum, 5mm sessile in the ascending, 6mm sessile in the transverse, 10-20 3-5mm sessile polyps in the sigmoid. 1.2cm & 1cm tubular polys in the sigmoid and 5-10 3-4mm sesssile polyps in the rectosigmoid colon. So age does not really matter. I do have a history of young colon cancer in my family though, and trust me I am freaking out about my biopsy results, hope they get back soon.

Waiting on Biopsies
To: itsjustme83
I like that you understand Polyps aren't prejudiced-they affect young, old any race, socio-economic status, and even people who are otherwise fit and healthy.
It's too bad that you have to deal with all these things at such a young
age, but it sounds like you've been a responsible patient with your follow-up care. We just never know ultimately how or when we will die, when I first heard about my 10mm seissel polyp in rectum and 5mm in sigmoid, my Heart sank. I'm 44years old and do fit many risk factors. Just had the colonoscopy on Friday, and it could be ten days out on pathology! What is a person to do with herself for ten days? Keep on living!! Ultimately, I can control the attitude that I have each of those ten days. To be sure, I'm just gonna take it one day at a time! Today, I found myself googling colon/rectal information less- it's not going to change the outcome of my results! A little healthy worry will remind me to do all the things I can do for myself in the next ten days. Get enough sleep, fluids, high fiber diet/low in fat, stay away from cigarettes and alcohol. Develop questions I may have for Doctor with that healthy worry, so that when biopsy comes back, either way I am prepared. It's only been two days on me doing this, and I'm noticing improvement-I don't feel so restless and discontent. Maybe you could try scheduling your free time to test drive how I've been living while waiting. Remember, the results are coming how are we going to meet and greet each one of those days in the meanwhile. WE ALL HAVE TODAY, YESTERDAY IS GONE, TOMORROW HASN'T COME.
LIVING IN THE NOW -FOR MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT : )
Best of luck to you I know you'll do fine regardless of the results if you can keep focused on the NOW! Talking to family and friends really helps ,,,,,,
Take Care,

Crisq,
Hang in there! I had a small and large polyp removed Friday, male 42, 2 beautiful daughters 3 and 8. I rely on prayer to get through, if you have never called out to see if God is real, it's never too late. If so, fall back on your faith.

Look at it is way, the polyp removal may have just saved your life, as these cancers grow over time. Colon cancer can be prevented or cured with early removal, regardless of polyp size or type.

Polyp in the ascending colon
The main thing is that these polyps have been discovered and action is being taken. My mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 1998 and is now approaching her 80th birthday so it is treatable and survivable. I have just had a colonoscopy and a 5mm polyp has been found, I now have a 2 week wait for the pathology results and as the doctor who performed the colonoscopy wasn't confident of his ability to remove the polyp I have to return in 4 weeks for a more senior consultant to carry out the procedure.

Polyps removed today
I just had a 10mm, a 4mm and a 5mm removed today. Doc said it didnt look like cancer but I figure he tells everyone that. It is going to be a long two weeks.

Precancerous polyps
I think the consultants do know by sight ... From experience. First time around , 4 years ago, consultant found 2 and said concerned about one, could be precancerous, and other looked ok. Histology proved him right. Had another colonoscopy yesterday, 3 year check, no symptoms, and found another polyp. This consultant hasn't said much, other than very small 3mm. And so I wait. I tend to look on the bright side and say at least it's out....
