Sat, Jan 19 5:26pm · High Risk for Colon Cancer due to Pre-cancerous adenoma, age, or both in Colorectal Cancer

Hello Bonnie, I agree with Colleen. I would ask your Dr. why the polyps were not removed. If he lacks the expertise to remove sessile (flat) polyps in the appendix area, maybe he can give you a referral to someone who can. I have a polyposis syndrome -Serrated Polyposis Syndrome and have yearly colonoscopies to remove any that have grown from year to year. They have ranged from 1 mm – 9 mm. Some are hyperplastic and some are sessile serrated adenomas which are pre-cancerous and need to be removed. Good Luck!

Dec 17, 2018 · Serrated Polyposis Syndrome (SPS) in Colorectal Cancer

I am a 61 year old female diagnosed with SPS after my first screening colonoscopy (no symptoms) 3 years ago. I had 3 clearing scopes in 2016 to remove 25+ polyps and am now on a yearly colonoscopy schedule with less than 15 found in 2017 and 2018. If anyone else out there has this condition, have you found any decrease in polyp growth after making lifestyle/diet changes? I do not smoke and eat a mostly plant based diet since my diagnosis. Thank you!
