Anthony Bray MD : I hope that this information helps to clarify
Anthony Bray MD : lLet me know if you have further questions. I will be happy to get back with you!
what is the best form of removal?...........what form of surgery?

Anthony Bray MD : Anthony Bray MD
Anthony Bray MD : Polypectomy via another colonoscopy is usually preferred but too large a growth might need an open procedure...
the growth is 5 cm
Anthony Bray MD : Let me know if you have further questions and I ' ll be happy to get back with you!
Anthony Bray MD : That is fairly large ---- you will need to consult further with your surgeon. I suspect an open procedure would be needed for a five cm lesion....
Thanks much........This is exactly what I was told, just wanted a little clarification.
Anthony Bray MD : Ok -- glad to help! Let me know if I may be of further help! Take care!!
