Doctors for Colon Polyps Treatments

People above the age of 50 might come across development of an extra tissue inside the large intestine. These fleshy growths are called Colon Polyps. Though it is considered not to be dangerous, but unfortunately some might develop into colon cancer over a period of time. The polyps which could be cancerous are called adenomatous polyps. The size is another issue which is of concern. The larger the size, the more chances are that it could become cancerous. A two centimetres or a one inch polyp could be cancerous.

Symptoms of Colon Cancer :

As far as Colon Cancer symptoms are concerned, there would be no symptoms as such. But you could observe blood in stools, or blood stain on your underwear, constipation or diarrhoea continuing for more than a week. As far the diagnose is considered, the doctors advise that people above 50 should go for routine check ups. The tests for colon cancer are: Colonoscopy, Computed tomographic colonography, stool tests, flexible sigmoidoscopy. Colonoscopy is the most preferred test as it helps doctors to have a complete look at the whole colon. But if the polyp is large enough, you might require a surgery.

The people who have a first degree relative diagnosed with adenomatous polyp would have 50% more chances of developing the colon cancer.

Treatment for Colon Polyps :

The general surgeon could suggest some changes in the diet. Addition of fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C, vitamin E, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower could prove helpful. Colon screening is highly advisable for those people who have hereditary colon cancer syndrome.
