Re: How long does it take a polyp to turn
I guess it all depends on how aggressive the tumour is. My husband was dx Stage 111C rectal cancer in July 2003 but he had an ultrasound and several rectal exams for an enlarged prostate in 1998. As his tumour was fairly low in the rectum, I am sure it would have been found in 1998 had it been there.
Husband dx July 2003, advanced rectal cancer stage 111C; myself dx July 2006 indolent lymphoma; husband dx February 2010, stage 2 prostate cancer.
