Cyst maybe?

Had a routine colonoscopy, no polyps, but the doctor did find something pushing on my lower bowel, on the outside. It looked like a small ball pushing against colon. He said it did not look "evil.". But did schedule me for a ct. I am 46 and post menopausal. I am not having any pain or other symptoms. Any ideas?

Re: Cyst maybe?

There are a lot of things that could be described that way. A cyst or tumor are among the possibilities. Remember that if it is a tumor, the vast majority of the time it would be benign.

Hoping for good news for you!
