Hi
Welcome to health care magic
multiple sessile polyps need first of all colonoscopic biopsy of polyp as chances of malignancy are high.It is inherited disease ,so chances of occurring in other family members always exist.As her age is already 75 ,so first rule out cancer.colonoscopic polypectomy is one of the modality of treatment.I will request you to have one more opinion from good gastro- oncologist or experienced surgeon from reputed teaching institute.

Hi, I have recently gone through endoscopy and H.pylori test and it was concluded that I have antral gastritis which is reported in endoscopy.But Could you please tell me a little about H.pylori test as the color of the stain turned pink which shows positive h.pylori . I am little worried if it was related to cancer. Is cancer detect in endoscopy as no ulcer shown in endoscopy. Kindly take me out of this horror.

I am a 70 year old female. I have had IBS most of my life, but one year ago I began to be severely constipated and only having a bowel movement every seven days and only then because I have had to resort to using a laxative. I did add more fibre to my diet and am trying to drink more water. The only blood I have noticed seems to be on the outside of the stool, therefore, I think it s only because of the colon lining being irritated. I have abdominal pain everyday, which is sometimes generalized, but most recently the pain in my left lower quadrant has become quite intense. In the past month I started taking ClearLax , which is similar to Restoralax and have increased fibre and drinking more prune juice, hence, bowel movements are more frequent and softer. Having said that the pain still persists. I also experience what would seem like liver pain which seems to be in the entire liver area and is quite intense sometimes. An xray last year showed a fatty liver. I was referred to a general surgeon in Dec. 2013, and he did not examine me at the time, but booked me for a colonoscopy which I can t get an appt. for until June. He also has booked me for an MRI, but the wait time for that is extremely long, could be a year, if I m lucky. As another opinion, do you feel that this could possibly be something serious.
