How to effectively deal with polyps?
What are polyps
Under this term understand tumors with different etymologies that occur after the growth of mucous membranes.
These phenomena have different localization, affecting the uterus, esophagus, nose - all areas with mucous membrane.
One of the onThe most common areas of polyps is the intestine.
It is this type of neoplasm that occurs frequently and requires the maximum attention of patients to their state of health, since polyps are difficult to detect in a timely manner.
Polyps are a serious disease, difficulties arise and when treatment is selected. After all, it is important to clearly establish the type and nature of the polyp, and only then apply surgical or medical manipulations or try to eliminate the polyp with folk remedies.
The classification of polyps is quite wide.
Depending on the nature of occurrence, modern physicians distinguish 2 main types of such neoplasms:
Their treatment can be conservative or surgical - it all depends on the size and dynamics of development.
To eliminate these tumors need an operation. But before the resection it is important to conduct a complete diagnosis of the body.
Depending on the causes, 3 more types of polyps are distinguished:
Polyp occurs in the area of inflammation. They usually occur in the area of the colon or the direct part of the intestine.
This is one of the most dangerous types of neoplasms, because growth is due to degenerative changes in the cells. This is fraught with a polyp reborn. With such an education, the operation is a must.
This is the growth of healthy tissue. Therapy depends on the characteristics of the course of the disease.
Also, there are 2 more types of polyps, depending on the form:
They resemble the tubercles on the mucous membrane of the colon or rectum.
On the leg.
These polyps resemble mushrooms, as they have a leg and a cap.
Depending on the histological features (after resection, a polyp is examined under a microscope), the following types are also distinguished:
- Juvenile.They usually affect areas of the colon or rectum in children and adolescents.
- Glandular, they are also called adenomatous.
Also, after the examination, depending on the number and location of the formations, there are 3 more types:
- Located diffusely.
The main dangers of these formations are the high risk of rebirth and the overlap of the lumen, which will prevent the advancement of food.
Therefore, if polyps of the large or direct intestine are found, they are subject to urgent excision.
Keep in mind that letting the process take its course is extremely dangerous. Therefore, choose the optimal treatment together with your doctor.
Any initiative, as well as incompetent therapy with folk remedies, can lead to fatal consequences.
Causes and symptoms
Where do polyps come from? Not so long ago in medicine, such pathologies were extremely rare, but today the situation has changed.
Doctors believe that tumors in the intestine may occur after such processes and effects:
- injuries and damage to the mucous membrane;
- frequent stool disorders may also develop after the appearance of a polyp;
- infectious and bacterial intestinal lesions.
After such pathologies, the appearance of polyps is likely. In most cases, these lesions of the mucous membranes are without severe symptoms.
But when the formations reach a sufficiently large size, the following symptoms appear:
- pain in the abdomen, with irradiation to the lumbar region;
- increased gas production;
- problems with the chair;
- loss of appetite and increased salivation - signs of polyps in the intestine;
- pain in the sternum extending into the stomach, but this symptom is characteristic of a polyp in the duodenum.
In order to prevent the development of pathological processes in the intestines, it is important to monitor the state of one’s own health, to undergo systematic diagnostics and timely treat all diseases.
Even the treatment of polyps with folk remedies can end sadly if you do not visit the doctor’s consultation before the course begins.
Professional Polyp Therapy
Standard treatment of polyps is divided into 2 major areas:
- Conservative. At the same time, medications and various procedures are used, differing only in the beginning of the disease. The success of the drugs in the early stages confirm the reviews.
- Operational. It is possible to conduct radical and minimally invasive operations. In spite of the fact that recovery is required after them, they are distinguished by maximum efficiency.
Each direction has a number of features and nuances. There is also a treatment with folk remedies, but in modern medicine more radical methods are more readily used.
After all, they have proven undeniable effectiveness. Therapy with folk remedies is permissible as prevention of recurrence.
So, drug therapy involves the elimination of the causes of the disease.It is appropriate in the presence of inflammatory processes and in the early stages of the development of the disease.
But drugs are used extremely rarely, due to the late diagnosis of tumors. Usually, when a polyp is detected, it is already so large that an urgent operation is required.
Among the surgical procedures used to remove polyps, the most common procedures are:
This is the most popular method of therapy, the effectiveness of which is proved by patient reviews. This is an innovative procedure, suggesting the absence of damage to the dermis. With the help of a colonoscope or retroscope, a special tool in the form of a loop is inserted into the rectum. He passes an electric current. Having fixed the electrocoagulator on a polyp, the physician starts up a current, after which the neoplasm is cut off. Exposure to the current also provides rapid cauterization of the vessels feeding the polyp and prevents the appearance of bleeding. This method is carried out to remove polyps in the intestine, in particular, located in the lumen of the thick and direct sections.
Radical excision of a polyp from parts of the intestine.
Usually hemicolectomy or resection is performed. For this purpose, laparoscopic access is used, or an open abdominal peritoneal surgery is performed. Typically, radical methods are applicable after identifying signs of the degeneration of education. They are distinguished by a rather long recovery period, but the risk of polyp recurrence is minimized.
Doctors around the world recognized the high efficiency, which demonstrates surgical treatment.
Despite the risks and the recovery period, it is the operation that involves the complete excision of the polyp, which minimizes its reappearance and eliminates the risk of rebirth.
Another proof of this is the numerous reviews about the excision of colon and rectal polyps.
Therapy folk remedies
Traditional medicine is rather reserved with similar methods and preparations.
After all, the effectiveness, which shows the treatment of "grandmother's" means, is very doubtful.
But still there are a number of more or less safe ways that should be used to prevent the appearance of polyps and in the postoperative period:
For their preparation, you can use a decoction of chamomile, celandine, yarrow. Prepare the grass as described in the instructions. Do not forget to cool the broth to room temperature, otherwise the folk remedy will deliver a lot of discomfort. Then it is necessary to make a cleansing enema or empty it. After enter the decoction into the rectum under pressure. Wait a couple of minutes and empty. This manipulation should be carried out at bedtime.But note that such treatment is unacceptable after surgery! Wait for the healing of the wound surface on the mucous membranes and perform manipulations only after an examination by a doctor. Effectiveness microclysters prove reviews. Not surprising, because these plants have an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effect.
It is important to eat as much fiber as possible. This will help to normalize the stool and minimize damage to the mucous membranes. Such treatment with folk remedies is safe and only beneficial.
The use of specific products.
Eating of viburnum berries, eating beetroot juice, horseradish with honey, etc., are very effective. Modern treatment with folk remedies is not without these products. They have a healing effect on the intestinal mucosa.
