I just had a routine colonoscopy.  I am age 53.  This is the second one; first was approximately 10 years ago.  Doctor discovered one sessile polyp and internal hemorrhoids.  I know I have to wait for the report to come back, but have questions.  What does a sessile polpy mean?  Is it connected to the hemorrhoids?  I have no symptoms.  Am healthy.  Not overweight, do not drink, smoke, or do drugs.  Get regular exercise.   Grandmother had colon cancer but she was in her 90's.  When should I get a repeat colonoscopy?  What could have caused this?  A while back I had constipation after discovering I had hypothyroidism, but got better with probiotics.
