DW: President Joe Biden’s doctor on Wednesday released the results of the president’s colonoscopy.
Biden’s colonoscopy discovered a 3-millimeter polyp, which the president had removed, according to a memo from Dr. Kevin O’Connor, who serves as Physician to the President.
“The following is released with permission of the patient,” O’Connor wrote in his memo.
“As previously reported in my 19 November 2021 memorandum. President Biden had a benign appearing 3 mm polyp removed from his ascending colon. The specimen was sent for histologic examination,” the president’s physician wrote.
The doctor continued, “The excised specimen has been identified as a tubular adenoma. This is similar to the polyp which he had removed in 2008. A tubular adenoma is a benign, slow-growing, but thought to be potentially pre-cancerous lesion for which no further action is required at this time. Routine surveillance is recommended for this finding. Typically, repeat colonoscopy in 7 to 10 years is recommended.” more here
