Polyps x colon cancer ?

Hallo all!

I am new there. My husband has history of 2x testicular cancer (first 2005 and second last year). He is completely cured (by chemo) just now. But in in no matter.
He has regular PET CT as screening after chemo. His first PET CT was clear (October 2010) but now on 2th of May he has some finding in his colon/rectum area. Radiologist noticed "nonspecific polypoidal formation on sigmoid".
What it means? Has he have polyp or cancer? He will have colonoscopy for check this finding. If he has polyp and it wasn´t picked up on his previous imaging by PET CT may be that it grew up to big size and it is cancerous?

How treatment is for it?

I am sorry for my post, but I am very scared after his prior cancer... I have read something about polyps and colon cancer but I hope that someone could clear up this matter for me better than web articles.

Thank you very much and very appreciate any replies and advices!
