Question
dear doctor,
I am from Venezuela, and I am afraid because yesterday I got a colonoscopy and found 4 sessil polyps. The doctor told me that they need to be removed. I am afraid because I think perhaps it is too late and they are malignant. I am a man 53 years old. 1 year ago they removed me a small polyp in my rectum.
Thanks for your opinion.
Anton

Answer
Dear Anton! I have been having one colonoscopy done for myself every year during the last 8 years. 6 polyps have been found and  removed during this time, none with cancer - so far! It is soon time for my next one. So have them removed soonest!

Good luck!
