Dear XXXXXX,

Thanks for contacting Healthcare Magic.

Your colonoscopy shows some nodularity of I-C valve. Only biopsy findings can decide what this exactly this is. Prolapse of IC valve is a benign condition and you dont need to worry about it. Whereas adenomatous changes mean neoplastic tissue, this needs to be removed by resection, as this may turn into malignancy.

I think at the moment you should not worry and should wait for the biopsy reports to come. Hopefully biopsy report wil be favourable.

Best wishes,

Dr Dinesh Singal

Dear XXXXXX,

Thanks for contacting again.

Villi in nodularity can mean it is a ileal mucosa or even can be seen in cases of villous adenoma. So one can be sure what it is only after biopsy report.

Best wishes,

Dr Dinesh Singal
