Check out this nice summary done by the Cleveland Clinic that attempts to demystify the various medical terms used to describe colon polyps:
Not sure what type of polyps you had? When you are due for your next exam? Don’t worry, we will help you figure it all out!
At Comprehensive Gastrointestinal Health we take a holistic approach, meaning we have a team of professionals including a gastroenterologist and nurse practitioner, a registered dietitian nutritionist, a behavioral coach/counselor, and a physical therapist/fitness consultant all on staff. We all work together to assess your symptoms and to recommend treatment options.
We can help determine if it is time for colon cancer screening or surveillance and we can perform colonoscopies in our brand-new deluxe endoscopy suite. Through the support of our dietitian and/or our Comprehensive Weight Management Program we can help to reduce your risk of colon polyps and colon cancer.
REMINDER: March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month! Join us in supporting the Colorectal Cancer Alliance’s mission to end colorectal cancer – one of the most preventable and treatable types of cancer – in our lifetime. All month, the Alliance will share resources on prevention, screening, treatment, research, and patient and family support, so #DontAssume you can’t help.
