My husband went for an colonscopy and they found a polyp that was 3.5cm. the biopsy came back and according to the report it showed mild dysplasia. they want he to come back and two weeks. what keep of questions should we ask? Also he is only 45.
Welcome to the gastroenterology community! Mild dysplasia basically means pre-cancerous but not yet cancerous so it is good that they removed it. Questions that you should ask include how often will he need to get repeat colonoscopies and if he has any other risk factors.
