Hello

The lump that was found is generally caused by a polyp growing and the cells form into a lump on the lining of the colon. The polyps are a mutation of genes that result in an abnormal amount of cell growth.    Polyps are generally not cancerous but some can be, or if left untreated can become cancerous.    There is no sure fire way to prevent them but it is recommended that by eating eat more fruits and vegetables, less fatty food, eating more calcium, not smoking or drinking alcohol, frequently exercising,  losing weight if needed, and taking a low dose aspirin-with your doctor's approval might help.
  

I Hope This Helped!  Have A Nice Night!
