I have known 2 people with carcinoid tumors and they are extremely rare. One person had one on his lung and the
other had one on her small intestine. You are right as they are extremely slow growing and are curable is found early.

Anyone would be nervous, so I would not feel any anxiety over those feelings.

No need to explain on the other post, I found you!

Sounds like you have it under control.  Glad they are taking care of it now.  Don't worry about the old person colon.  Stuff just happens and sometimes it doesn't matter what age you are.

Thanks coldhands. It is under control. I have a great doctor. :) i do have bad moments where I worry, worry, worry. But honestly, I haven't had a panic attack which is amazing.
