My mother recently had a number of scans done - just as precaution. She had a bowel scan done - not a c-scope just an image via a CT scan. In her report they noted "a slight thickening of the bowel wall". Her consultant just commented that it is something they will keep and eye on.
Does anyone know what a slight thickening of the bowel wall means. Is this something that happens as you grow older or does it lead to the potential for polyps to be present etc?
