: They haven't said that he has cancer. I thought that polyps were cancer. What are polyps?
It is a growth that is causing obstruction. I am not a medical expert or doctor but I believe
that the doctors must remove part of the polyp and sent it for testing before they say whether
or not it is cancer. I have heard of people that live with noncancerous polyps. I am not sure how common
or uncommon cancerous polyps are.
Hope for the Best!!!!!!!
