I was diagnosed with colon cancer five years ago. I had surgery, and they removed the tumor. Unfortunately, they found cancer in one of my lymph nodes. Currently, I am undergoing chemotherapy. I had an ultrasound done the other day. My liver looked fine, but they found a 3 mm polyp in my gallbladder. Could this be related to colon cancer? Should I be worried about the polyp?
As per the details and images (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity) provided by you, it looks a stage 3 colon cancer. So chemotherapy as adjuvant treatment is advised for six months. It is unlikely that gall bladder polyp is related to colon cancer. It is small and just needs monitoring with ultrasound. If it increases in size or changes shape, it must be removed along with the gall bladder polyp. Why did they want to do an ultrasound of the liver after chemotherapy? Please share your reports for further evaluation and management.
