Oncology (General Cancer)/help


dear friend, I am writting desesperate from Caracas because in a colonoscopy they found 4 sessil polyps. I am 53 years old. 6 years ago another colonoscopy but I was all right. The doctor took one of these four polyps to analize. According with the doctor one of these polps is around 2 cm. To be honest I am terrified....1 year ago anothjer doctor did a rectosigmoidoscopy in stead of colonoscopy..I do not know why....I am obssesive about this problem...all day long thinking about this....too worried...I think what would happen if the doctor does not cut the poly in the right way...etc...etc.etc....
Can you give me your opinion please....

I think I have answered you before. All 4 polyps should be removed and all 4 should be checked by a pathologist! Do it soonest  And have new colonoscopies done once per year from now on! Good luck!
