Ask Dr. T – Can Pre-Cancerous Polyps Re-Grow?

June 5, 2011 at 9:42 am Leave a comment

We haven’t checked in with our favorite Lee’s Summit gastroenterologist in awhile, so I thought we’d throw a question his way:

Dear Dr. T,

Can pre-cancerous polyps re-grow (once removed?)

Dr. T says:

“Not usually at the same site where they were removed -sometimes a polyp that is incompletely removed will recur -especially flat or large polyps. Sometimes more frequent exams are required to ensure that regrowth does not occur.”

 

A huge thanks to Dr. Marc Taormina of Midwest Gastroenterology for weighing in on our “everything colon” questions! If you have a question for the doctor, just leave a comment, or send me an email and we’ll get your questions answered!
