Growth Question...

I recently had a CT Scan done, the first report came back as all clear, then there was an Adendum, they said they found a non invasive non aggressive 16mm mesentric mass/nodule adjacent to the ascending colon...They did not say anything else, I have consulted with 5 different radiologists and surgeons and they all think it is non cancerous and want to repeat the scan in 3 months...2 Radiologists think that it might be Divertocoli or something like that...I just had a colonoscopy right before this that came back OK...what can this be...they mentioned somehting about a Desmoid tumor...There was no activity anywhere else, all organs were non unbrusted and unremarkable...same thing with the Chest and brain...can this actually just be a benign growth since it is outside the organs??

Re: Growth Question...

I should add that is also said soft tissue mass, I plan on getting it removed, but they wanted to monitor it for 3 months to see if it grows, I am a 27 year old male...There was no lymph node involvement or anything else on the scan, that is a big growth not to spread right??
