Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your post and colonoscopy with biopsy report (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Two issues I find are diverticulitis and colonic polyp. Treatment for recurrent diverticulitis is surgical excision. Treatment for tubulovillous adenoma with high grade dysplasia is complete endoscopic excision followed by endoscopic surveillance.
