Adenomatous polyps and genetic testing
I am 39 years old and just had my second colonoscopy recently. Three years ago I had 3 polyps removed, 1-adenomatous and 2-hyperplastic. I just found out that out of the two new polyps they removed, one was again adenomatous and one was hyperplastic. As it stands, my GI wants to repeat the test again in 3 years and I understand the thought process behind frequent scopes and catching polyps early.
I guess the thing that I am wondering about is given my age, and somewhat of a family history of colon CA (maternal grandfather -terminal), should I be considering genetic testing? If so, does insurance cover that or how expensive is it?
