Talking Mass in colon.

I had annual colonoscopy last week, and Dr. found a mass. He did biopsy, and scheduled me to return this week to see results.
This mass was not found last year.

My grandfather had colon cancer at age 82, and told me he was going to live a long time - he lived to age 99.

A cousin refused to get colonoscopy, and died of colon cancer at age 56.

Since I get a colonoscopy annually, should I be worried, and what to expect.

Thanks for the help
