Is recurring abdominal pain suggestive of colon polyps?

Had endoscopy done about 18 months ago, for abdominal pain, all test results came back fine. The pain has returned, I m supposed to have a colonoscopy done later this year as precaution, I ve got a family history of colon polyps, should I see my GI doctor now, or deal with the pain until next fall, I m hesitant since he didn t find anything last time, I feel like ours be wasting his time and mine.

Thank you very much for contacting healthcare magic.

Your family have history of colon poly so chanses of colon poly is more.Without colonoscopy examination cannot tell anything.

There are many cause behind abdominal pain. Intestinal infection like ulcerative colitis or chons disease may ruled out.

Intestinal inflammation like celiac disease may cause abdominal pain .
Bacterial or viral or parasitic infection may cause abdominal pain.

Stool examination test is helpful for further diagnosis.
Colonoscopy examination is give exact idea about colon .

Consent a gastroenterologist for further diagnosis.
I hope my guidance is helpful to you.
Thank you very much.
