What does it mean to have an oocyte in the colon? One of the most common questions with polyp appears to be whether they are serious or not. It is therefore essential to know that this pathology is benign tumor with a diameter of 0.5 cm and a variable shape, which can be found at different sites of the digestive tract, although it is more commonly found in the colon.
There are many types of polyps, most common of which are hyperplastic and adenomas. The first one is characterized with no risk of developing cancer, while others are more commonly developed in colon cancer.
Although these are the two most common, there is a wide range of polyps, so you have to pay attention to their size, as those over two centimeters in diameter can represent areas with developed or developed cancer.
Given their appearance, everyone can have them, more often in adults over the age of 50. However, certain situations increase the likelihood of suffering from them, such as, for example, those who have had polyps in previous cases if they had a family member or if colon cancer exists. The emergence of polyps grows with age, and the causes that cause them are not well known, even though they are suspected of having a hereditary component or that they are created by eating fat-rich and poor-fiber foods.
In most cases colon cancer polyps have no symptoms, except those with large size that can bleed. That is why the knowledge that asymptomatic forces us to periodic analysis to find them.
The video colonoscopy is indicated at age 50 for all asymptomatic patients, from 40 years of age if there is a family history of colon cancer (parents, mother, grandparents and grandparents) and at any age if the patient has symptoms that can be attributed to pathology.
Diagnostic Technique useful for the patient
At present, colon cancer is one of the most common, both in men and women. This technique, a video colonoscopy, is considered the best way to prevent this disease in time because it is detected in its early stages of development, ie when it is still in the polyp phase.
Colonoscopy is the most accurate way to detect polyps and can be cut, if necessary, during the same procedure, completing an analysis when testing pathological services. In the early detection of polyps, it is important to consider colonoscopy as routine examination. The medical expert will indicate the time at which the study will be repeated in each individual case and taking into account certain variables, such as the number of extracted polyps, size and histological type.
It is important to note that anesthesia gave a fundamental contribution to the realization of video colonoscopy, as it avoids the patient's uneasiness that can be attributed to the procedure and provides the study in its entirety.
The Gastroenterology and Digestive Endoscopy Department of the Allende Sanatorium included new digestive video endoscopic towers in both places: the Olympus 190 EVIS EXERA III. This equipment, as the first of these features in the province of Cordoba, aside from the endoscopic expert in managing this type of last generation endoscope, allows us to position ourselves in the same technological conditions with the first world.
The endoscopy tower offers many benefits, both for patients and for their professionals. The HD recording system and image preview enable early detection of polyps in the colon.
These stiffness-enhancing properties allow the patient to reduce the discomfort after carrying out the study, making this practice an outpatient, routine, and low percentage of complications. In other words, since the introduction of the endoscope, a professional can handle it in a simple and agile way avoiding organ barriers. In this way it is possible not only to pass the insensible colon areas in the usual endoscopes, but the endoscope also ensures that the procedure is successfully performed by studying the colon in its entirety.
Technological advances allow us to have top endoscopes that deliver high resolution images and which are used by expert endoscopists and trained for their use, providing a 100 percent sensitivity and efficiency percentage.
