What is the remedy for colon polyp sever displasia?
I ve been told I have colon polyp sever displasia. I have had two colonoscopies, one in Nov. 2013 and another March 2014. I had another back in Feb. or March of 2012. I am being refered to a surgen now because the GI doctor said the cells are deeper than he can safely remove. My question is how bad can this be?
There are basically 2 types of colon polyps. One that have a very low risk of turning into cancer and the other that have a high risk. Severe dysplasia is the pre-cancerous condition that precedes the formation of cancer. It always develops into cancer if left to grow. Hence it needs to be removed either endoscopically or surgically. If the endoscopist says that the cells are too deep then you might have to undergo surgery.
