Question
Posted by: Sheena | 2010-11-24

Sessile polyps

Polyps were found during a colonoscopy. Biopsy showed no cancer, but these have probably been causing the iron-defiiciency anemia which was being investigated.
What should I do about the polyps now? What doctor should I see - the surgeon who conducted the colonoscopy? a gastroenterologist?

Hi Sheena
The surgeon who conducted the colonoscopy is probably also a qualified gastro enterologist and usually they remove the polyps if they are bleeding or very big - just find out if they did not remove them already when they took the biopsy?
