The report just states what they found and the location. The biopsy is to tell the doctor exactly what the lesion is about. If I am not mistaken, anything removed from the body must be sent for biopsy.
Since the report indicates the lesion was a polyp according to the doctor's observation (the way lesion looked) it is routine procedure to biopsy anything or any area that is not normal. Polyps are generally benign, but in this age group, in the GI tract, always better to be safe and check it out. Something this small is unlikely to cause symptoms.
Thank for the reply to all.yes doctor has taken some sample during the biopsy. I would like to know , Polyps is a some kind of danger ? Is it require to do any kind of treatment for polyps ? if Yes what treatment needs to be done ?
Some polyps in the GI tract can eventually become cancerous, so small ones are usually removed during the scope. You might ask when you get the biopsy report if the polyp was removed at the time. No other treatment is generally needed other than follow up endoscopies at intervals suggested by your doctor.
Looks good. The polyp was removed and it only showed some inflammation, no malignant changes, so she is fine. These are common and not dangerous, but her Dr. may want her to have an endoscopy in 3 years or so, in case any more develop, they can be removed when small. Please ask about recommendation for followup from the Dr.
