Oncology of intestinal polyps

Polyps on the intestinal walls give out symptoms rarely, but they can turn into malignant tumours over time. Therefore, it is better to get rid of polyps, and consultation with a doctor is necessary in cases of their detection.

Intestinal polyps are small benign neoplasms that grow asymptomatically on the inner mucosa.

Intestinal polyp – oncology?

Doctors detect polyps in the large intestine sometimes. It is a fairly common disease, affecting 15 to 20% of people. The size of polyps is usually less than 1 cm but can reach several centimetres. They grow alone or in groups. Some outwardly look like small bumps, others have a thick or thin leg with a seal in the shape of a mushroom or a bunch of grapes.

Intestinal polyps – oncology? Not yet. Polyps themselves are benign growths that rarely worsen a person’s well-being. But they can transform into malignant, ill-treatable tumours.

Intestinal polyps, oncology and risk factors

It is still not known precisely why the cells begin to turn into atypical and form tumours suddenly. Analysis of the incidence helped to identify factors that increase the risk of polyp growth:

  • age over 50 years
  • inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis)
  • smoking
  • alcohol consumption
  • excess weight
  • sedentary lifestyle
  • type II diabetes that is difficult to treat
  • heredity is the most significant factor.

The number of relatives with such a disease also matters. Although sometimes multiple cases of polyposis in the family are not associated with genetic factors.

Polyps rarely signal their presence with symptoms.


Maintaining the body

The only practical way to get rid of polyps is their surgical removal. It is swift and painless. When a polyp is detected, the doctor sends a tool into it, injects a little liquid into the intestinal wall under the polyp so that the borders of the neoplasm are visible.

Then a special nozzle-loop captures the polyp, tightens its leg and cuts off the intestinal wall, passing an electric current around the loop. My opinion is that we can prevent intestinal polyps, oncology and other pathologies by maintaining the body in a healthy state, and colonic hydrotherapy can help.
