Colon polyps alone are unlikely to result in any pain or discomfort. However, colon cancer may result from the presence of colon polyps that are not removed. A gastroenterologist may be able to test stools for blood or use internal imaging to detect colon polyps, but they are rarely symptomatic when colon cancer has not developed.

It is important to have colon polyps removed before cancerous cells are able to form. Once you begin to experience symptoms, it is likely that colon cancer has already developed and is at an advanced stage. Dr. Yamini recommends undergoing regular screenings for colon polyps, so you can receive treatment at our offices when needed.

If you have concerns about colon cancer or other gastrointestinal conditions, Dr. Yamini is an accomplished gastroenterologist with two offices in California. There is no greater comfort than knowing you have a head start on the potential development of any kind of cancer, but especially those which are largely without symptoms.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Colon Polyps?

Patients will not usually experience signs or symptoms of colon polyps, other than blood in the stools in rare cases. However, signs of advanced colon cancer indicate the presence of polyps. Symptoms to look for may include fatigue, bloody stools, changes in bowel movements and abdominal pain. If you experience any of these symptoms, Dr. Yamini wants to hear from you right away.

We can discuss any symptoms you may be experiencing or arrange a screening for colon polyps. It is our aim to help prevent serious conditions such as colon cancer from developing through screening and the removal of polyps in and around the colon.

Contact the offices of Dr. Yamini today if you have concerns about colon cancer and would like to arrange regular screenings with a gastroenterologist.

Scheduling was extremely easy with Dr. Yamini's staff, I scheduled my Tuesday appointment on Monday afternoon. The staff and Dr. Yamini were courteous and straightforward - even with new patient paperwork I was out the door within an hour!

Dr. Yamini definitely is a great doctor who is very thorough and detail oriented with his diagnosis. He is very passionate about what he does and was able to answer any question or concern. He took his time before my appointment to look through all the documentation to know exactly what was going on. He definitely was able to put me at ease even though I was very worried. I am very satisfied with his services. Thanks!

Mario O.

He was very gentle about my situation yet did not fail to emphasize about the seriousness that could arise from gastrointestinal problems. Few and far between are as professional and caring as Dr. Yamini and his staff. I was 20 minutes late on Friday evening & they still had me in a room in 5 minutes as a new patient.

I can’t say enough great things about my first impression of this doctor and his amazing staff! They got me right in and set me up for everything needed. I’ve been looking for the right GI doctor for years having had a very negative experience with another doctor years ago. Dr. Yamini is not only professional, knowledgeable, respectful, and experienced... this guy is “cool” and nice too! His front desk person, Toni was amazing! She was kind, bright, efficient, patient, and positive! ??

Makes talking about uncomfortable subjects a breeze. Competent and honest: doesn't sell vitamin cleanses and his own probiotics or anything like that. Makes sure your symptoms aren't half-fixed but fully fixed. Gets to the heart of the issue quickly. Good listener. Very sweet receptionist. I hate receiving many phone calls, and she's persistent about making sure you set up an appointment; it was stressing me out. I found the her much easier to connect with once she gave me her cell and said to text.

Thank you Dr. Yamini and Tony. When it comes to patient care and professionalism, I have never received this much care and attention from a physician and the staff. I was able to talk to Dr. Yamini for good period of time allowing me to ask all my questions. Tony you are so cute thank you for scheduling me in last minute.

Kyle K.

I highly recommend Dr. Yamini. He's very personable and actually listens to your issues and concerns, then recommends a reasonable course of action. He was able to properly diagnose my symptoms and get me healthy again. Also his admin Toni is great too, she will help select a facility and verify that your insurance will fully cover. She's really nice and trustworthy as well!

Eric W.

Thorough doctor who cares about his patients, and very meticulous about the details of your ailment. Clearly very knowledgeable and skilled. No wait time for appointments, and the nurse (Toni) is very friendly and follows up appropriately. One of the best doctor experiences I've had and I'd recommend it to anyone.
