Male 42 w/5 Polyps Removed
I have one first degree relative with colon cancer and several others who have had precancerous polyps removed. A blood test flagged anemia around the same time I noticed some bleeding, leading to a colonoscopy. You folks are the experts, so I figured I'd ask how unusual my numbers are. I know about the genetic disorder and understand that I don't have it. The polyps were adenomas (sp?) and I was told to come back in three years. I kinda got the impression that they don't see polyps in someone my age very often. Both the nurse and the Dr. made it a point to say it was a good thing that I came in early rather than wait until I was 50.
Just curious what people think.
