Polyps in Small Intestine?
I just had a SmartPill exam of my small intestine yesterday for chronic diarrhea. The doctor said I had a nice intestine, but then also mentioned that he saw an area of interest, perhaps a fold, perhaps a polyp that he could not ignore & while he did not think it was causing my syptoms, I might need a CT enterography at some point in the future. This scares me! One more thing to worry about...
I am a 39 year old female who was othrewise healthy until November of last year. I do have a hystery of uterine polyps & while being worked up for my digestive issues 2 stomach polyps were located & biopsied. They were benign. Now this thing in my small intestine. Does anyone else know that they have polyps in their small intestine?
I have never had a colonoscopy, so maybe they're there, too.
