Polyp in rectum

Asked for Male, 5 years

My son has a polyp in his rectum which is causing bleeding with stool. Dr has suggested colonoscopy he is 5 years old. Is it ok to go for it? Secondly, what are the fair chances of regrowth?

Dear Patient,

I'm sorry to hear that. Polyp usually occurs repeatedly if it runs in the family. If it is causing active bleeding then it is best to go for colonoscopy and find out if there are more. However, I would recommend you to take an opinion from another gastroenterologist if you have any reasons for reluctance or questions.

For further consultation, you can choose from our list of best Gastroenterologists in Lahore and seek in-person advice.
