Together, colon and rectal cancers account for 10% of cancers in men and 11% of cancers in women
Multiple polyps are common
Rectal polyps are commonly found by sigmoidoscopy (visual inspection with an instrument consisting of a tube and a light) or colonoscopy
Most rectal polyps produce no symptoms and are discovered on routine digital or endoscopic examination of the rectum

A Low Anterior Resection is an operation to remove rectal cancers which are very low in the pelvis but not low enough to warrant surgery on the rectal sphincters. In surgical terms, this means at least 2 cm margin from the levator ani.
Research published in 2003 confirmed the benefits of physical activity in reducing risk of colon and rectal cancers.

A: Diseases like colon and rectal cancer, polyps, hemorrhoids, fissure, fistula, diverticulitis, Crohn's Disease, and ulcerative colitis may require surgery of the colon or rectal areas.

No. soft coral polyps have eight feathery tenticles whereas hard coral polyps have flat tenticles. :)

By which method was the removal done, and how many polyps? Need more clarification to assign one of the following appropriate CPT codes: 45308 = removal of single tumor, polyp, or other lesion by hot biopsy forceps or bipolar cautery 45309 = removal of single tumor, polyp, or other lesion by snare technique 45315 = removal of multiple tumors, polyps, or other lesions by hot biopsy forceps, bipolar cautery or snare technique
