Good news

Three weeks ago, I scared my friendslist by saying that my colonoscopy found a fair number of polyps,one of which was huge and they they were biopsying it.

I wasn't all that worried myself because Dr. K didn't seem worried and I've had biopsies before (I grow moles).

Anyway I got the results yesterday and, yep. BENIGN.

However, what I didn't know was that he was a little worried. They were hyperplastic polyps, which are usually benign *but* they were on the right side of the colon. Apparently, polyps found on the *left* side are almost always benign, but ones found on the right have a greater chance of malignancy, and the big guy? Was big. No, I don't know why the difference, and a fast google searce doesn't help.

Yeah, I was glad to be told this *after* finding out it was benign, but he was very relieved, which is now scary in retrospect. (If it had been bad btw, I'd have asked if it would be safe to hold off treatment until August - until after my mother's wedding. Who doesn't know about the biopsy, either.)

So, he wants to remove the big one sometime next winter, and he wants to do it in a hospital, not the clinic. It's just for the size of the thing.

Any way, it's all good news. Yay!

Happy bum!

It is very happy. And I have pictures - it was very, very clean.

Good to hear!

Thank you!

I'm so relieved to hear that it is benign. What a good doctor to not scare you when all you could have done was wait and freak.

I agree. Telling me anything else would have just made things worse.

Glad to hear. {hug}
