Nodules In Colon

Hi, everybody,

Earlier this week I had colonoscopy and endoscopy. My gastroenterologist found a suspicious nodule in my colon, and the results don't look good. Has anyone else had this problem?

Hi...when I first went to the gastro they were concerned my symptoms were ulcerative colitis or crohn's so they did a sigmoidoscopy. (I ended up having Celiac diagnosed by endoscopy) I was awake for the whole thing and the only thing they found was something called an inflammatory polyp - it looked like a little nodule. They took it off and biopsied, etc...it wasn't a big deal. They biopsy everything just to make sure all is well...I'm sure it will be fine.

I think nodules are pretty common. I just had my colonoscopy done and he found some nodules. However, I don't know what your doc meant by "suspicious". I'm assuming they did a biopsy. It's probably nothing.

At my first colonoscopy they removed 4, and later determined 2 were "pre-cancerous" in other words, if they had not been found and removed, they might have become cancer. This was around 38yo while we were trying to figure out what was wrong. second colonoscopy at 40, found 2, 1 precancerous. third (by which time I was gluten-free), found only 1 small one. supposed to go back in 4 years. (My endos were negative, but he only did one biopsy in the duodenum).

I had a CT done of the chest and abdomen early in September and then again about a month ago as a follow-up. At the time of the first CT, I was in the process of being dx with pneumonia/plurisy. Anyway, the CT showed a "nodule" in my lung, and a couple in the abdomen. It kind of worried me so my PCP ordered the repeat in November. None of them had grown and one was gone. He explained that these were most likely benign cysts. "You get them on the inside of your body just like you get them on the outside of your body," he said, and "Sometimes with time they become calcified and show up as bright spots on an X-ray or CT scan."

    • Thankyou ch88 you are so very kind, im so glad there are forums like this, so helpful.  Only signed up the other day and everyone is great.
    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
