colon cancer?

I am a 31 year old female, just had a colonoscopy done where the Dr. removed 5 polyps, one which was abnormally large. They were sent for bioyopsy. What kind of risk am I for colon cancer? I have severe constipation, bleeding rectally and in stools, bloating most of the time, extremely gasy, and suffer from acid reflux.

Polyps unfortunately elevate the risk of GI cancer.  Not sure if these are cancerous or not; have to wait for the biopsy.
