I had a endoscopy following acid reflux, stomach pain and a couple of occasions of old blood in stools. They found a duodenal polyp just over 1.5 cm( that's all the info I have till biopsies have returned. Is it likely I will need this removed?
This is Dr. Davidit would be best to have the duodenal polyp removed by upper endoscopy just in case.most likely the polp will be benign.99% of all polyps tend to be benign.but you and your GI doctors won't want to leave it in there in the 1% case that it could turn out to grow malignant.let me know if you have other questions.if done for now, please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you todaywe only get credit for helping clients after positive feedbackyou can always reach me with "a question for Dr. David" in the medicine or oncology categories if you have any other questionshere is my website if you need to reach me again: for using
