Polyps or adenomas are tissue growths that grow from the mucous membrane of the colon to the inner side, that is, the cavity of the colon.
They can be small, medium or large, with a pedestal or without a peduncle. If polypes are large in size, they narrow the intestinal cavity.
FREQUENCY OF APPEARANCE
The frequency of bowel polyps ranges between 7% and 50%. They can occur in both sexes, at any time of life, but are most common after 60 years of age.
Usually they are single, but there may be more of them (multiple polyps). Although polyps can be found in all parts of the colon, they are usually located in its final part.
The emergence of polyps is associated with colon cancer. Although polypes are generally benign, they are, however, considered as premature changes, because over time they can develop bowel cancer.Namely, the polyps have a different degree of dysplasia, that is, a different degree of disorders of the cells with a changed nucleus, accelerated growth, altered glands, and reduced mucus secretion. These changes can cause cancer development.
Risk factors for polyps Polyps appear as a consequence of an error in the growth of colon cells. Factors that lead to the development of polyps include: genetic factors and environmental factors.
Genetic factors have great significance in patients with familial polyposis and hereditary non-polypoidal carcinoma. These diseases are rare, but when confirmed, it is necessary to examine the members of the patient’s family. These examinations consist of: colonoscopy and genetic testing.
Epidemiological analyzes show that environmental factors can create polyps. This is especially true of diet. If food is high in fat or if there are not enough fruits and vegetables, that is, fiber, there is a greater likelihood of polyps and colon cancer.
Food fats increase the production of bile acids, some of which are carcinogenic.
Symptoms and signs of the polyp
Polyps are usually without symptoms. However, bleeding from the colon may occur. bleeding is usually discrete, and much less abundantly. Discrete long-term bleeding from the colon can cause anemia (anemia), due to persistent iron loss.
If the polyps are large, they can cause pain and cramps in the abdomen. If they are located in the anus, that is, the outer part of the colon, and if they have a long peduncle, they can go through the outer aperture of the anus. Large villous polyps can sometimes cause diarrhea.
If polyps are detected, they should be surgically removed. The method by which polyps of the colon are removed is called a single-polypectomy. It is a simple and painless procedure, which is well tolerated by the patient.
After surgical removal of the polyps, they are sent to a microscopic histological examination with a specialist – a pathologist. If the microscopic examination of the polyps does not show the presence of malignant cells, no additional therapy is required.
In those cases, patients are only monitored, as in 10% of patients there is a possibility for the recurrence of polyps. Because of that risk for the recurrence of polyps in already operated patients, the following is proposed:
Control colonoscopy twice a year, after the removal of the polyp, If the findings are neat and there are no new polyps, the following bowel overviews should be done every 3 to 5 years.
If the polyp is very large and can not be removed by endoscopic polypectomy, or if the presence of malignant cells in the removed polyps that penetrate the deeper layers of the bowel wall is detected, an open surgical treatment involving removal of the entire polyp with part of the colon.
