Colonoscopy Friday and terrified
« on: February 19, 2014, 10:07:32 AM »
So November 2012 I had a colonoscopy. They removed a very large colon polyp. I was 22 at the time. The polyp was adenomatous. The doctor said he thinks i have a genetic predisposition to get polyps but no bad genetic disease. I know it was only 15 months ago, but I am terrified they are going to find a cancerous polyp.

As long as you are checked regularly when they found an adenoma, you should be fine. I have known
others who have had an adenoma and they were all fine. Good luck!!!

I'm sure that you will be fine.
Cancer at you age is very rare.

I hope you don't mind but I will say a prayer for you.

Colon cancer is very slow growing. Worst case scenario they find another polyp. Sounds like your GI is very thorough. You'll be fine. Please update us.
