Re: colon tumor?
Thanks for the information. I also had some polyps removed that were not cancerous. I also had a tumor, which I just got the biopsy results back on which turned out to be benign. Whewww!!! The results showed that the tumor was not even precancerous. They did several biopsies on different sections of the tumor. I cannot understand what kind of tumor one could have that was not cancer. (other than polyps) I certainly feel a burden of anxiety has been lifted from my shoulders, but at the same time feel even more for everyone who facing the same anxieties about their health. I almost feel guilty for being lucky and wish I could share some of that luck with everyone else. But I still don't know what are the implications for a non-malignant tumor in the colon. I will have a consultation with the surgeon later this week when I should know more. He said that I am probably still looking at colon resection surgery but there may be other options. So it is a mystery to me as to what is going on "inside and down there". I was hoping that someone else has had a similar experience and could give me some information.
