Polyps found: Is conventional dysplasia really dysplasia
I just had a colonoscopy and two
polyps were found/removed: a cecal sessile serrated adenoma with “conventional dysplasia “ and a tubular adenoma in the right colon . I
was very concerned about the conventional dysplasia polyp referenced in pathology report. My doctor said he spoke to the pathologist because he’s never seen this terminology in 40
years of practice. The pathologist told him there is no dysplasia and the polyp is benign. I’m confused. Is conventional dysplasia not dysplasia? Why does the path report seem to say something different than the pathologist who
wrote it? Also, my doctor said to get another colonoscopy in
1-2 years. If it’s benign, why get another colonoscopy so soon? I’m a 78 year old male. Thanks for any advice/clarification.
