Egd and colonscopy

Hi, would a dr tell you that you have cancer, right after your exam or wait til after the biopsies come back, can they even tell by looking at it? Thanks

I think they can tell by looking, but probably will not definatively say it is cancer or not until the biopsy comes back. I had a rectal polyp removed at my colonoscopy and the Dr stated after the exam that it did not look worrisome, the biopsy result was benign.
