I really respect the integrity and honesty of health caremagic. This is why i ask questions. The sessile polyp in the cecum is almost 50 cm. (2inches)x. The interventional. Endocrinologist at the university. Hospital said it can be removed with some submucocus Procedure to lift the polyp and use a knife type blade for polyp removal. This is not done very many places. They say they can see of there are cancer cells and if there are they will stop the procedure and send send me to a surgeon. They regular gi. Doctor took many samples from the polyp and there was not any cancer in the samples . But . They cannot say if there are any inside the polyp. I sm concerned that if there are any cancer cells, that the cells can be dislodged and spread through Body.. can you advise.
