Hello Yulia Nurradhaa,
Intestinal polyps are lumps or lumps found in the intestine (especially the large intestine). Most intestinal polyps are harmless. Some cases can develop into cancer later in life. Symptoms of intestinal polyps include:
Changes in bowel pattern, become constipation or diarrhea
Nausea and vomiting, especially in cases of large polyps and intestinal obstruction
Risk factors for intestinal polyps include genetic factors, age factors (more common in older people), gastrointestinal inflammation, obesity. The diagnosis of intestinal polyps apart from clinical symptoms is also supported by investigations such as colonoscopy (inserting such a tube with a small camera to see the condition in the intestine).
Colon in loop examination is actually an x-ray examination, but added with a contrast agent that is inserted through the rectum. X-ray pictures will be taken at a certain time duration. Later if there are polyps in the intestine it will look like a shadow that fills the intestinal lumen. Contraindicated by colon in loop is if the patient has a history of allergies to contrast agents, there is a suspicion of intestinal perforation, severe diarrhea, and the presence of acute obstruction in the intestine. This examination can also be done on children. For detailed procedures you can ask further with the treating doctor.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
