I had my first colonoscopy last week. Two polyps were removed and 1 precancerous polyp was removed. Dr. called week later saying two polyps okay; howver, other larger one was precancerous. He has to schedule another colonoscopy @ 6 weeks from now because he wants to make sure he got the entire polyp. Biopsy criteria showed that he may not have gone deep enough. The remaining tissue/polyp, is that precancerous since it is part of polyp removed? I am @ 65, female}. Very upset. Thank you!
Welcome to the gastroenterology community! This is very common. It is most likely precancerous too and there is only a very small chance that it is cancerous. Either way it is good that it is removed completely.
